Multicultural Engagement Fund

Created in the 2016-2017 academic year, the Multicultural Engagement Fund is an initiative of the Division of Student Affairs that is coordinated through the department of Multicultural Services. The fund was created specifically to encourage and promote programming, travel, collaborations, and community work seeking to promote the 3 pillars of the Public Affairs mission at Missouri State University including Ethical Leadership, Cultural Competence, and Community Engagement.

Interested students must attend an information session for the fund before applying. After the session, students or student organizations interested in receiving funds should email a funding request, including description and a budget outline. 

Examples of funding include:

  • Registration and travel costs for student organizations
  • Food for special student organization events
  • Supplies and reservations for events
  • Guest speaker honorarium
