Apply for the OPAL Fund!

Interested in hosting or planning a program or initiative that requires financial support and aligns with the mission of the Office of Pluralism & Leadership ? Apply for the OPAL Fund!


The OPAL Fund was established to provide support for the planning process of undergraduate events and initiatives that are an expression of OPAL's goals. The OPAL Fund prioritizes proposals for events that are new or one-time initiatives or receive little to no support from other sources. Proposals made by a student organization should be in line with the organization's mission, vision, and goals. 

Due to a large number of requests throughout the year, OPAL's contributions range from $50- $500. Funds may not be used for charitable donations, alcohol, personal expenses, or prior expenses.

If have any questions or if you would like assistance with planning and organizing your event or initiative, please contact the Office of Pluralism & Leadership at 


  • OPAL Fund Applications are only available during the Fall, Winter and Spring terms. 
  • Proposals will be reviewed on Tuesdays from 2pm - 3pm. 
  • Proposals are due no later than Friday at noon prior to the review meeting.
