Michael Dively '61 Summer Grant Program

The Michael Dively ’61 Summer Opportunity Grant was established by Michael Dively ’61 to provide Williams students with exploratory experiences that shift their world views. Specifically, this grant will finance projects which provide students with an opportunity to engage with a broad range of issues related to gender, sexuality, and its intersections. Opportunities may encompass a variety of outlets, including (but not limited to) internships, summer courses, art projects, community service endeavors, research, conference attendance, etc., which place a specific focus on LGBTQI+ experiences, issues, and expressions.

The Davis Center will provide oversight for the selection process, which involves the collection and review of all applications. Upon selection, awards will be administered through the Davis Center.

The Application Deadline is Monday April 22, 2019.
