Small Grant

The Luann Dummer Center for Women occasionally provides support to individuals and groups to help defray the costs of attendance at conferences, direct expenses for research, mounting exhibits, bringing in speakers, etc. All requests must directly benefit the women of UST and relate to the mission of the Center. Preference will be given to those proposals that are likely to have significant impact on the UST community.

Submit your request in letter form, including a description of the program/conference/exhibition and the total budget. Include what portion of these expenses will be covered by other sources and how much you are requesting from the Center. Send this information to the Director of the Luann Dummer Center for Women, Dr. Young An, at If the application is complete and appropriate, the director will pass it on to the LDCW Advisory Board members. We will attempt to notify you within two weeks of receipt of the request.

If you are attending a conference or workshop, you are responsible for paying your expenses and then you will be reimbursed by completing an employee expense form and submitting it to the LDCW for account information and signature. If you are bringing in a speaker or hosting an event, we will discuss payment and/or reimbursement with you.

You are responsible for submitting a written report to the Center upon conference/workshop attendance or completion of the event/activity. Send this information to the Luann Dummer Center for Women, Mailbox # 4075 or to in a timely manner.

The Luann Dummer Center for Women would like to request that all recipients be involved in various LDCW programs (such as Feminist Fridays and other events) throughout the duration of the year+. These and more events can be found on our website here. It's important that we build a sense of intellectual community. Thank you!
