Ohio State Energy Partners (OSEP) contributes $810,000 annually to the university or affiliated philanthropic causes as part of its academic collaboration with Ohio State. Working with OSEP, the Energy Academic Collaboration Council is engaging the Ohio State community in a request for proposals for FY 2019 funding that help advance important priorities across the university while also promoting inter-college and community collaboration.
Priority will be given to proposals that align with one or more of the following focus areas:
- Income Equality
- Nine Dimensions of Wellness
- Arts & Humanities
Funding levels range from $10,000 to $100,000 and will be awarded on a one-time basis.
To be considered, the proposal must be submitted by a current Ohio State student, faculty member or staff member; must not focus on coal or political advocacy; and must align with the university’s Strategic Plan. Preference will be given to projects that engage the campus or broader community to promote internal and external collaboration.
