Grant Funding and Application

Late Night @ Emory is a co-sponsorship program by University Center Board (UCB) and Emory Dining to promote social activities on Friday and Saturday nights at Emory. To help accomplish this goal, the Division of Campus Life offers grant money to student organizations or departments to help provide a variety of funding options to ensure that a large, fun, social opportunity occurs for Emory students to attend.

Awarded co-sponsors will receive funding as well as programming support by the University Center Board (UCB). This application for co-sponsorship is available for any student organization or Emory department to apply. The organizations or departments that submit the strongest, most promising program that will maximize the Late Night @ Emory funds while providing excellent social activity will be awarded the co-sponsorship. However, funds are limited and all programs will not be granted funding. Fall programs will be held in September, October, November, and December. Programs in the Spring will be held in January, February, March, and April.

Activity Requirements:

Free to All Emory Students. Fundraising may not be required, but if the event is of a charitable nature, donations can be accepted, but are not required.

Fun – The purpose of Late Night @ Emory is predominately social in nature. While there can be a learning component, the focus is on building community and social networking.

Fridays or Saturdays @ Night – Should start AFTER 7:00 PM. Preference will be given to programs that last later than midnight and fill gap weekends.

Free from Alcohol – alcohol may not be served at a Late Night @ Emory event.

Evaluation – The UCB will work with you to create a method to evaluate the quality/enjoyment of the program. It can be really simple and will include such things as total number of people attending, a quick survey for feedback, etc.
