Subject: Proposals for Pepsi Enhancement Funds
Dear Campus Community Member,
Each semester the Review Committee for the Pepsi Enhancement Fund sends out a
call for proposals for program funding. At this time, we encourage you to
submit proposals for the Spring 2021 term. The programs and events must
occur during January 25 - May 11, 2021.
A $50,000 fund, generously provided by PepsiCo, will be used to underwrite
the cost of programs that broadly affect the campus population. For Fall
2020, we received 69 proposals, and we were able to award 58 grants. Some of
the programs receiving funding include Womxn in Symposium, Kidney Disease
Screening Event, Careers in Communication, Technica Hacks, Mental Health
Awareness Week, and Dorm Room Decorating with Studio A.
Each of the proposals will be measured by the following criteria:
1. Will the event/program contribute to the creation of campus
2. Will the event/program appeal to a wide audience of campus citizens?
3. Will the event/program contribute to the advancement of the academic
mission of the University?
4. Will the event/program enhance the co-curriculum, enlarging
opportunities for leadership, cultural and social exchange, and service to
the University and broader community?
Submit your proposal online at https://stampunion.umd.edu/pepsi/ prior to
5:00 p.m. Wednesday, October 21, 2020. All proposals must be completed
online and a response is required to all of the questions detailed on the
form. The Pepsi Review Committee will review all proposals by the end of
October. Departments and organizations receiving funds will be notified
following the Review Committee meeting and the funds will be available at the
start of the spring semester. Please note, in order to accommodate the
greatest number of groups in our funding process, a sponsoring organization
may not submit more than two (2) proposals per semester. For more information
on the Pepsi Enhancement Fund and a list of FAQs, please visit this webpage.
Thank you, in advance, for submitting your proposal for Pepsi Enhancement
Funds. Should you have any questions, please contact Dr. Donna Lim at
