ATTENTION EVERYONE: ASUC Academic Affairs Vice President’s Grants are Up and Running!

I’ll try to explain the grants process below. There are five different grants:  Academic Opportunity Fund, Intellectual Community Fund, Multicultural Fund, Educational Enhancement Fund, and the Public Service Fund.

Academic Opportunity Fund (ASUC AAVP Grant):  The Academic Opportunity Fund subsidizes off-campus academic pursuits – professional meetings, research conferences, academic competitions, and independent research.

Intellectual Community Fund (ASUC AAVP Grant): The Intellectual Community Fund provides monetary support to educational, activist, and awareness events planned by and for Cal students.

Educational Enhancement Fund (ASUC AAVP Grant): The Educational Enhancement Fund provides monetary support to DeCal courses and independent student-initiated courses at UC Berkeley.

Public Service Fund (ASUC AAVP Grant): The Public Service Fund strives to develop a sense of community awareness and enrich students’ community service experiences.

Multicultural Fund (ASUC AAVP Grant): The Multicultural Fund provides monetary support to events introducing the campus to a culture.

All of the grants are essentially run the same. The only difference is that you would apply to a specific one depending upon the idea behind your event. So ask yourself what your event is promoting!
