Who is eligible to apply?
Open to faculty (standing and non-standing), staff, departments, programs, and centers. Please note that rolling grants are subject to the discretion of Sachs staff and the availability of funds.
What is the timeline for this grant opportunity?
Applications are due on a rolling basis as long as funds are available.
What do the grants support?
A formalized version of our discretionary grants. Rolling grants can support art projects by faculty, staff, departments, programs, and centers (students are not eligible for this grant category). This is an opportunity for funding for projects that do not align with our normal grant cycle, for projects or opportunities on a shorter time frame, or to support unanticipated costs for a current project.
How much can you apply for?
Applicants may request up to $3,000.
Our Rolling Grants program is closed for the year. Please subscribe to our newsletter to receive updates on our next grant cycle.
Sachs Program staff will do their best to meet with all individuals and groups interested in submitting an application.
The Sachs Program has limited resources and will therefore not be able to fund all requests.
Matching funding is strongly encouraged, when possible, but is not required.
The Sachs Program aims to support projects that meet the criteria and which best align with our priorities for grantmaking. Should a proposal or application not meet the criteria and/or not align with our priorities, Sachs Program staff may recommend that an applicant withdraw from the pool.
The Sachs Program supports a creative, culturally diverse and pluralistic Penn community. We are committed to supporting individuals and groups from all races, ethnicities, gender identities, sexual orientations, religions, disabilities and socioeconomic backgrounds.
