Proposals should meet the following criteria:
- The initiative should enhance the emotional, psychological, and social wellbeing of SAIC students and/or decrease the psychological distress of SAIC students.

Proposals should be no longer than a single page and should include the following information:
- Name and contact information of the primary contact person
- Description of the project, including purpose and rationale
- Summary of how the award will be spent
Note: As this grants competition has not taken place before, it is not possible to provide examples of previous successful proposals. Proposals could be classroom projects or collaborations outside of class, new efforts or expansion of work already begun, based on the work of an individual with participation from others or the genuine collaboration of a group, or events/exhibitions/performances to take place on campus or involving SAIC community members doing work in communities beyond SAIC. As long as the proposal positively impacts SAIC students’ health, mental health, and wellbeing, it will be eligible for consideration.
The deadline for proposals is February 1. Awards will be announced two weeks after the deadline. Proposals will be assessed for the breadth and depth of their impact on the SAIC student community. Finalists will be chosen by the SAIC Wellness Center Student Support Network, which is an organization made up of students who have completed Mental Health First Aid Training and meet regularly to develop strategies impacting the emotional, psychological, and social wellbeing of SAIC students. Awarded funds must be spent by July 1.
Please send your proposals to Joe Behen, PhD, Executive Director of Counseling, Health and Disability Services firstname.lastname@example.org or SAIC Wellness Center, 116 South Michigan Avenue, 13th floor.
