Eagle Grants Program

There are two (2) grant categories being offered to faculty and staff. Category 1 is for requests ranging from $1,000 – $5,000. Category 2 is for fund requests ranging from $5,001- $25,000.

Both Category 1 and Category 2 proposals must support at least one area of EWU’s mission:

  • Student Learning: Delivering high-quality academic programs that undergo regular, rigorous review informed by data and assessment of student learning;
  • Student Development: Delivering a high-quality co-curriculum designed to develop the intellectual, cultural, personal, and practical aspects of students’ lives; and
  • Student Completion: Promoting student success by supporting student engagement and timely degree completion.

The EWU Foundation Eagle Grants Committee will review proposals twice each academic year.
