SPME Micro Grant Program
SPME micro-grants are available to SPME members in amounts of up to $4,000 for the 2018-19 academic year. Grants are aimed to support faculty with educational initiatives that confront the BDS movement and its claims about Israel, as well as programs dealing with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the Middle East at large. In addition, if needed SPME staff would gladly work with members to help develop relevant programming.
Examples of micro-grant-funded initiatives include (but are not limited to):
- Campus events and programming
If you are interested in applying for a micro-grant, please fill out the application below with as much information as possible highlighting what your event is trying to accomplish, and how does that align with SPME’s mission.
Grants can be made to departments or can go to individual members. Where honoraria are involved for speakers and invited guests, grants should be made through an established department or program.
Each SPME member receiving support is required subsequently to submit a brief summary including how the grant funds were used, and evaluating the outcomes or achievements the initiative created.
