All alumni communities (chapters, constituent societies, and affiliate groups) have access to a special IUAA grant pool. The grant pool is available during the current fiscal year or until all funds are completely utilized. The IUAA fiscal year runs from July 1–June 30.
Communities should plan and budget for their yearly calendar of events based on the annual allocation funding received from the IUAA and expected revenue generated from those programs. Grant funds are available for additional financial support above the annual allocation.
Grants are awarded on a case-by-case basis. Communities may submit as many grant proposals as they wish; however, the total amount of all grants awarded to a community, in a given fiscal year, cannot exceed $3,000. Special consideration will be given to grants that support the Chartered Communities Program.
The applicant must complete the attached application. Only applications completed in full will be considered. Please be sure to include a proposed budget and plans for promotion. Requests should be received at least 60 days prior to the event.
