Section 1 Title


The CHSS Inclusion Committee invites applications and nominations for the newly established CHSS Inclusion Grants and Awards; the committee will award up to $10,000. Many of our CHSS faculty and staff are already seriously engaged with promoting UVU’s focus on inclusion in their activities and scholarship. Inclusion Grants provide an opportunity for monetary support for nominees’ continued pursuit of inclusion. Inclusion Awards recognize individuals and programs whose past and continued work for inclusion sets the bar for the rest of CHSS. As such, the Inclusion Grants and Awards program serves a two-fold purpose: providing support for existing inclusion efforts and encouraging members of CHSS to consider the value of inclusion in planning future activities. 

In preparing your application, consider utilizing UVU’s Strategic Inclusion Committee definitions available here.

Awards and Grants Information


In 2019–2020 there will be one call for nominations for CHSS Inclusion Awards, due by February 15, 2019. There are four award categories: one for a program, department, or other organization within CHSS; individual awards for CHSS faculty members; individual awards for CHSS staff members; and awards for individual students or a group of students. Information on the nominations process is on the separate application. Recipients will be celebrated during the Dean’s Awards in April.


In 2019–2020 there will be two calls for application for CHSS Inclusion Grants, with deadlines in Fall 2019 (October 15) and Spring 2020 (February 15). The Inclusion Grant application process is similar to that of the ELLA Grant. Possibilities for applications include, but are not limited to: a speaker or event with an inclusive focus, underrepresented student outreach or support, research related to questions of diversity, equity, and/or inclusion. Within one month of the application deadline, the CHSS Inclusion Committee will notify applicants of the decision. Inclusion Grant funds must be used by June 30, 2019.
