ODU's Town-N-Gown Seeking Applicants for Grant Awards

Each spring Town-N-Gown awards funding to deserving organizations or projects affiliated with the University.

Any school, college, department, or organizational unit, including student organizations, activities, and sports teams, affiliated with or sponsored by Old Dominion University are welcome to submit a grant request for any amount up to $4,000. The deadline is April 22. Decisions will be made by June 10 and funding will be available to the selected applicants approximately July 1.

Projects that impact the quality of life and well-being of ODU students, faculty, and staff or enhance the academic standing, research capability, or national profile of the University are eligible to receive funding. In evaluating each grant request, the organization will consider tangible and intangible factors including:

  • Merits of the project.
  • Potential influence on the quality of life for University students, faculty and staff.
  • The number and merit of competing requests.
  • Availability of funds in the award cycle.

Town-N-Gown is an independent association dedicated to developing a mutual understanding between Old Dominion University and the civilian and military communities of greater Hampton Roads.

To request an application, contact Pamela McNaught at pamelamcnaught@aol.com.
