Recognizing that many campuses are doing great work to develop a better culture of conversation, the purpose of the Ask Big Questions Pilot Innovation Fund is to identify and support such initiatives, and to learn from them.
Over 30 campuses applied for grants from the Innovation Fund in October. After a review process that included Ask Big Questions, The Einhorn Family Charitable Trust staff, and a member of Hillel's Board of Directors, nine campuses were selected to receive funding. All grantees will send representatives to a consultation to be held in late May. The aim of the consultation will be to better understand how partnerships between curricular and co-curricular units can lead to changes in campus culture.
Ask Big Questions awarded a total of $99,470 to nine campuses in the United States.
The individual grantees are listed below:
