Request for Proposals
2014-15 University Graduate Laurels Block Grant Program
Deadline for Proposals – December 16, 2013, 5PM
The University Graduate Laurels Block Grant Program (UGLBG) is administered annually by the Graduate School. The UGLBG enables graduate programs to compete for and manage Laurels Graduate Scholarships in conjunction with other graduate student financial support resources.
The purpose of the UGLBG is to assist graduate programs in the strategic use of graduate student financial support resources to enhance both the quality and diversity of their student populations, thereby enhancing program quality. Block grant allocations will be awarded to select graduate programs that submit a plan showing innovative and/or successful methods:
- to deploy funds to recruit and retain graduate students of the highest quality to advance the graduate program; and
- to advance the institution’s diversity goals in broadening participation by educationally underrepresented segments of society within the graduate enterprise.
