The Trustees of Pi Gamma Mu have established the Lectureship and Chapter Events Fund for the purpose of advancing the social sciences and researching and eliminating all forms of discrimination. Funds may be used by chapters in the following two ways: 1) to bring a specially qualified speaker to campus for a chapter event, or 2) to help cover expenses related to a chapter hosting a scholarship based-event for students. The Fund serves as a memorial to deceased Trustees of this honor society. The Trustees encourage chapters to apply.
The amount available for a lecture may range up to $300 depending on chapter size (see "Funding Guidelines" below). The topic of the lecture must be related to one or more of the fields within the scope of Pi Gamma Mu (see the Constitution). The lecturer should have special qualifications and must be a guest, not a member of the local faculty, administration, or staff. If approved, a check will be sent to the responsible chapter officer for presentation to the lecturer.
Chapter Event Guidelines
The amount available for a lecture may range up to $300 depending on chapter size (see "Funding Guidelines" below). Chapters of Pi Gamma Mu hosting a scholarship-based event, such as a student research conference or symposium, may apply for funding of up to $300 depending on chapter size. Funds may be used to help cover costs related to hosting the event. If approved, a check will be sent to the chapter officer.
Chapters must have initiated members in the previous or current fiscal year to be eligible to apply.
A limited number of grants are available annually.
Grants are awarded in the following amounts based on the number of new members initiated in the previous or the current fiscal year (September 1 – August 31):
1 - 10 members $100
11 - 20 members $200
21+ members $300
Please mention Pi Gamma Mu as a funding supporter in the event program/marketing materials. We strongly encourage that a copy of the manuscript of the lecture, a copy of the event program, and/or photos of the event be sent to [email protected] for possible publication in the International Social Science Review or the Pi Gamma Mu Newsletter.
Filing of this application includes acceptance by the applicant of conditions set forth on this form.
