Proctor & Gamble is soliciting applications from colleges and universities for projects or programs that improve curriculum, promote leadership opportunities, create learning environments that are stimulating and innovative, and increase diversity in thought. The Higher Education Grant Program (HEGP) is a one-year grant program and awards range from $5,000 to $10,000 depending on the scope of the project. HEGP will accept multiple awards from universities but caps the amount a university can receive for one year at $50,000. HEGP will only accept two applications per discipline (i.e. two applications from the Department of Chemistry).
The deadline to apply is September 30, 2017.
Proctor & Gamble has an online grant application system, which can be accessed here.
Please read the HEGP Flyer 2017 for more information.
Previous Spelman recipients of the HEGP award include Dr. Yassin Jeilani of Chemistry in 2015 and Dr. Shanina Sanders of Chemistry in 2016.
