Service Project Grant: Book Banning and Minority Communities

On February 24, 2023, I held a Cultural Life Program at Furman University with the help of Dr. Margaret Oakes, Dr. Timothy Helwig, and Dr. Kaniqua Robinson. During this, we discussed Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye and the effect of banned books on minority communities. This event was a great way for us to have people all across campus and our community involved in such an important dialogue. We could not have done this without the generous Chapter Project Service Grant from Sigma Tau Delta. Check out our video for more details!

Sigma Tau Delta Chapter Service Project Grants

Sigma Tau Delta’s Chapter Service Project Grants are designed to encourage local chapters to be innovative in developing projects that further the vision and goals of the Society. The Society will award a limited number of grants, for no more than $500 each, to support local chapter activities. Funds may be requested for separate projects or for parts of larger projects, and chapters should explore ways to use Service Project Grants in combination with funds secured from other sources. Funds may be requested for ongoing projects, but there is no guarantee that projects funded during one grant period will receive funding in future grant periods.

Applications must be complete and received by November 6, 2023. No late submissions will be accepted. Award winners will be notified by December 11, 2023, with one-half of the awarded funds mailed in early January; the other half when a final project reflection is submitted. The Final Project Reflection is due May 1, 2024.
