Programming Board Grants

The Programming Board Grants are a new opportunity being implemented for the 2016-17 academic year.  These grants give clubs and organizations the opportunity to develop ideas for the benefit of the entire campus community.  Funding for the grants is provided by the Pitt-Johnstown Programming Board. 

Grants ranging from $100 to $1,500 are available.  Programs having greater impact on the campus will be considered for the higher grant amounts.  Grant applications will be reviewed weekly at the Programming Board meetings.  There is no limit to the number of grants for which a club or organization can apply.  Grant applications submitted for events with closed attendance (or where attendance is limited to a specific group on campus) will not be considered.

Here’s how it works: 

  1. Download an application for my clicking here.
  2. Submit your completed form to the Campus Life Office (130 Student Union).  We encourage submissions to be made at least two weeks in advance of the planned event or activity. Your submission should include a description of the event, a budget, and a copy of any promotional posters or flyers that you plan to use. 
  3. You will be notified of the status of your grant application by the Office of Campus Life.

Please note that your organization will be responsible for making room requests and working with Conference Services to identify physical plant setups and food needs.   Depending on the nature of the activity or event, an advisor or other campus employee might be required to participate, especially in cases where travel is involved. 

Grant money cannot be used to hold fundraising events where there is a charge to attend.  Grant money can be used, however, for fundraising events were voluntary donations are solicited at the event.

Organizations whose grant requests are denied will be able to resubmit if Programming Board recommendations are made to the new grant application.
