UGA Parents Leadership Council accepting grant proposals for student life

Athens, Ga. – The University of Georgia Parents and Families Association and its Parents Leadership Council are accepting grant proposals for the 2014-2015 academic year. Grant applications are due by the close of business Feb.7. Grants will be accepted only from UGA schools, colleges, units, departments, divisions or recognized student organizations registered with the department of campus life.

Proposals must demonstrate a direct and positive impact on student life at UGA. Grants will be awarded in the spring by a committee established by the Parents Leadership Council.

Since 2002, the council has funded more than $1 million in grants to programs and organizations on campus, including the Counseling and Psychiatric Services Center at the University Health Center, the Office of International Education and the Office of Student Financial Aid.
