College of Arts and Sciences Diversity Committee extends deadline for Diversity Lecture Series Grant applications

Submitted by Tanya Gonzalez

The College of Arts and Sciences Diversity Committee invites applications for the Diversity Lecture Series Grant. The deadline to apply is Wednesday, May 17. 

The College of Arts and Sciences will provide funding of $500 to $1,000 to host prominent speakers, presenters, or performers. Funding will supplement what each unit or units commit toward the speaker's visit. The speaker's activities will be fully determined by the host unit(s). Speakers' activities are expected to be listed in the unit's speaker/performance series and as part of the Arts and Sciences Diversity Series. Applications from all Arts and Sciences departments will be considered. When appropriate, partnerships with units outside of Arts and Sciences are encouraged.

Speakers must fall under one or both of the following categories:

  • Address issues of diversity or multiculturalism in general or in the context of a given discipline or group of disciplines.
  • Belong to a group that is underrepresented in that discipline, regardless of the topic of his or her talk.

In all cases, and unless special circumstances emerge, it is expected that speakers have time assigned to meet with undergraduate and/or graduate students.

Please submit your application to cas-diversity@k-state.edu.
