The Teagle Foundation invites proposals from two- and four-year colleges, universities, higher education consortia, and non-profit entities that share our commitment to the liberal arts and aim to pursue programs under one of our current initiatives.
Please review the "For Grantseekers" guidelines before submitting inquiries to the Foundation.
Requests for grant support will be considered following our two-stage application process. First, we ask that prospective grantees share brief concept papers. After review of the concept papers, a limited number of applicants will then be invited to submit full proposals. Teagle staff value the opportunity to learn from and collaborate with grantees and provide extensive feedback as proposals are refined. Once the proposal is finalized, program staff will determine whether to bring the grant request forward to the Teagle Foundation’s Board of Directors at one of its meetings (held in November, February, and May).
Please note that we only grant to tax exempt 501(c)3 organizations that are based in the United States, and we only provide support for grant-related activities that take place domestically (for example, we do not fund international travel).
The following sections provide details on eligiblity and how to apply for a grant. They also provide general guidelines for administering grants, including required annual narrative and financial reports.
