Whether funding is granted for an individual event or long-term projects lasting up to two years, the following reporting deadlines apply.


Reporting Deadlines for Grant Cycle Four (August 2015-July 2016)

  • Written reports are due within 30 days of your final grant-sponsored event or by September 30 of the year following your award, whichever comes first

  • Grant authors who plan to seek renewed funding for 2016-17 must submit a report prior to submitting a renewal proposal


Write your Report

Include a Record of your Expenses

  • See sample expenditure report.

  • List the amount funded and your expenses. Was this budget adequate? If not, why not? Do you have any funds remaining?

  • If your work is still in progress or you would like to repeat your project, you may apply for additional funds through a renewal request with an updated budget, which will accompany the record of your expenses to date. Please consult grants staff prior to submission.


Submit your Report

Send your report through the Google Form and email all supplemental material to with the subject line "last name_Grad Life Grant Report Supplemental Materials." This should include 4-5 pictures of theevent as well as your detailed expense sheet. 


Consider Long-Term Funding

Some grant authors wish to run their projects indefinitely, beyond the two-year (maximum) period for which grants are allotted. If you wish to be considered for long-term funding, please contact Mimi Beck about your plans at Submit your final report using the checklist above.


Projects approved for long term funding must:

  1. Clearly demonstrate their impact
  2. Include a plan for stability of leadership

  3. Define future budget requirements

  4. Identify funding partners who might share the future expenses of this project, or explain why the grants are the only viable funding source

  5. Make a convincing case for the program’s permanent status
