Call for Proposals: Dartmouth Centers Forum 250th Grants

The Dartmouth Centers Forum, a collaborative alliance of 20 campus organizations that seek to promote an open dialogue on complex issues, invites proposals for programming in 2019 that inspire, spark cross-campus dialogue, and embody the words of Alan Kay when he said: “The best way to predict the future is to invent it.”

Background
At a moment in which great divisions threaten our world, how can we challenge ourselves to step bravely into the future?  The Dartmouth Centers Forum (DCF) and the Dartmouth 250th Anniversary invite proposals from students, faculty and staff that address the 2018-2019 theme, Envisioning the World We Want. 

Overview
Through this Request for Proposals (RFP), the DCF hopes that creative panels, workshops, discussions, and performances around this theme will work to draw students, faculty, and staff into bravely inventing our shared future together.
 
The DCF adopts the Envisioning the World We Want theme in concert with the Dartmouth 250th Anniversary in celebration the past 250 years at Dartmouth, “Honoring Our Past; Inspiring Our Future”.
 
Proposal Submission and Reporting Information
Proposals that demonstrate collaboration among organizations and strive for inter-group collaboration and engagement are highly encouraged. We hope to receive proposals representing a broad range of activities from in-depth dialogues with a few participants to larger, campus-wide programs.

The deadline for proposals is by end-of-day on Monday, February 11th.

 Proposal budgets should not exceed $2,000 and the primary project lead on proposals must be a student, staff, or non-tenured faculty member although collaboration with tenured or tenure-track faculty is permissible. The selection committee may choose to award full or partial funding. Successful proposal applicants will be contacted the week of February 18-22.

Grantees will be required to submit a one-page description of the event along with (a) the number of individuals involved in the event; (b) 2-3 digital photos (with a minimum resolution of 300 dpi, as an email attachment) showing those who participated in the event; (c) reflection on lessons learned and how the event achieved its goal in line with the DCF theme.
