Dear Colleagues,

In light of the current climate and public health concerns regarding COVID-19, below please find an FAQ for EDI Funding Requests through the remainder of Spring Quarter 2020 (last updated | 2020 04 09):

Can I still apply for funding?

Yes! However, please note: given state and federal requirements, we will not be accepting applications for in-person events taking place through the end of Spring Quarter 2020. That said, if you have a non-impacted program that conforms to safety guidelines and physical distancing practices as well as meets EDI funding criteria, you are welcome to still submit an application.

What if I already applied to EDI for funding for an upcoming event, and that event is now cancelled?

If you have already submitted an application for this current application cycle and the correspondingĀ  event was cancelled, please let us know as soon as possible by e-mailing Rusty at rklibaner@equity.ucla.edu. There will be no penalty and we can easily withdraw your application.

Moreover, if you know your event will be rescheduled to an official, later date and/or if you have an alternative, safe and physical distancing-compatible event in mind, please send us more information and we would be happy to review your updated proposal.

What if I already received funding for an event from EDI, and that event is now cancelled?

Similar to above, if you know your event will be rescheduled to an official, later date and/or if you have an alternative, safe and physical distancing-compatible event in mind, please send us more information and we would be happy to review your updated proposal.

However, if your event will not be rescheduled and there is no current alternative planned, the awarded funds will have to be returned to EDI.
