Four times each year the chair of the KEAC will send out requests for proposals for funding:



If you or your department or student group has a project in mind (speaker, artistic performance, research, etc.) that supports the “needs and interests of women at Hamilton,” you may apply to the Kirkland Endowment Advisory Committee for financial support. We define this mission broadly, and support work by and about women and gender (and with gender as it intersects with race, class, sexuality, disability, nation). We welcome proposals from student groups. We are especially interested in interdisciplinary and innovative programming.

Student travel for research and creative work

We assist women students with travel for research, service, and for presentations of creative work or research at professional meetings. (We cannot support senior project research or study abroad work and we cannot support students after graduation. Typical grants for travel within the U.S do not exceed $400 and cover up to $1000 for international travel.)

You may address queries and send completed applications to keac@hamilton.edu. Please include:

  1. A brief description of the activity, including its intended audience.

  2. A complete budget, including amount requested and other sources of funding;

  3. We ask that events sponsored by the Kirkland Endowment Advisory Committee credit the Endowment in any and all publicity.
