The Office of Public Affairs Support is now accepting applications for the Public Affairs Grant Program. Applications are being requested for programs that will occur during the Spring 2010 semester. Deadline for applications is Friday, October 30, 2009. The Public Affairs Grant Program provides financial support to faculty, staff and student organizations and groups to sponsor events for the campus community that are consistent with Missouri State University’s public affairs mission. These are events that provide opportunities for dialog that encourage faculty, staff, and students to explore topics of public concern. Interdisciplinary and collaborative proposals are especially encouraged. The primary audience for these events is the campus community, but community participation with facilty, staff and students is welcome. Application and proposal guidelines can be found at here. For questions, contact Mary Ann Wood, Director of Public Affairs Support.
