Athens, Ga. – The University of Georgia Parents Leadership Council is accepting grant proposals for the 2013-2014 academic year. Grant applications are due Feb. 8 by the close of business. Grants will be accepted only from UGA schools, colleges, units, departments, divisions and recognized student organizations registered with the department of campus life.
