The Newcomb College Institute Grant Program funds research and activities that support the mission of the Newcomb College Institute, which is to provide academic and co-curricular programs that enhance women’s leadership and gender equity. The Newcomb Grant Program encourages faculty-student, interdisciplinary, and cross-unit collaborations in the production of new knowledge that may be integrated into the undergraduate curriculum.

Teaching Grants may be used to fund classroom enhancement activities such as a speaker, speaker panel, or conference within an existing class/es, within an academic program or department, or across departments or disciplines. Proposals for events involving multiple speakers or departments are encouraged.
Special Initiative Grants will fund a large event or project such as a speaker series, conference, art show, or film festival. There may be a single event or there may be several events within the same theme/topic which are scheduled throughout the academic year and held on the Tulane campus. The funded project may be departmental (involving one or more participants from a single department or discipline) or interdepartmental (involving participants from more than one department or discipline) and must in some way directly involve and benefit undergraduate women-identified students at Tulane University. If the project will involve two or more persons (even if from the same department/discipline), please designate one as the coordinator.
The Altman Program in International Studies & Business supports speakers and other campus events (e.g. conferences, films, workshops) that promote an integrated approach towards liberal arts and business disciplines, address the interconnectedness of today’s globalized world, and touch upon changing opportunities in global economies, politics, and culture — both from academic and practical points of views. To facilitate this sharing of knowledge, the Altman Program offers financial support to several events each year. In general, these events must be open to the Tulane community at large so that Altman Scholars can attend. Application for sponsorship is open to all Tulane faculty, staff, and students. Deadline: 2nd week of semester in which event is scheduled
