Preference for mini grants will be given to activities that meet most or all of the following guidelines:

  • Promote student interaction.
  • Engaging, interesting, creative, or unique.
  • Structured to promote students attending entire program, rather than being a “stop by” for students prior to going out for the evening.
  • Demonstrate collaboration between multiple groups or organizations.
  • Open to a broad audience.
  • Can identify goals and evaluation metrics.
  • Can provide an appropriate description of how the funds will be used.
  • Funding from McWell is integral to making the event a success.
  • Application is submitted at least two weeks prior to date of event.
  • Alcohol alternative mini grant requirement: On Thursday, Friday or Saturday night after 9 pm OR an alternative event directly linked to a high-risk time (ex: alcohol-free game watch).
  • Well-being mini grant requirement: Can identify what dimension of well-being the event aims to impact and how.

Clubs and organizations that receive funding will also be asked to complete a brief post-event survey and display a McWell promotional poster at the event.

Contact Emily Schulze at eschulze@nd.edu for more information or to submit posters or publicity materials.

This grant program is intended to provide funding to events that might otherwise not be funded.  If your organization is hosting an event that you’d like to request McWell co-sponsor, please contact McWell at mcwell@nd.edu.
