Is there a maximum amount I can ask for?

Where do I send my completed application?

Who is involved in deciding which applications are funded?
Applications are reviewed by the President and PLF staff. Deans, faculty and other campus community members may be asked to provide additional information.

The application asks for a C-account number, but I do not have one. Do I need a C-account to apply for funding?
You may apply for funding and then obtain a C-account once your application is approved.

Although this timeframe varies, The President's Leadership Fund is usually able to transfer the funds to the approved C-account within 3-4 weeks.
