ODEI Co-Funding Program

The Office for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Co-Funding Program is designed to provide co-sponsorship support to UCSC activities, projects and events that reflect ODEI's mission to promote a campus that is diverse, equitable and inclusive.

  • Tier 1 co-funding provides co-sponsorship up to the amount of $500 per proposal and is open to all campus constituents.
  • Tier 2 co-funding provides co-sponsorship up to the amount of $1,000 per proposal for faculty and graduate student projects or recruitment efforts related to advancing diversity and inclusion on campus.

The Co-Funding Committee will review all proposals collectively after each quarterly or bi-quarterly deadlines to determine which proposals best meet the criteria guidelines and accomplish ODEI’s mission. Responses will be sent out to everyone who submitted a proposal by the response date provided.
