Doyle Grants

Doyle Grants provide funding to support student research, programming, and learning that engages difference and promotes diversity at Georgetown University. Grants offered through the Doyle Program facilitate co-curricular learning opportunities, deepening student engagement with equity and inclusion. Grants are available for individual students, campus organizations, and faculty. 

Past Doyle Grants have brought prominent guests to campus and supported co-curricular activities around Washington, DC. Since 2009, the program has sponsored over 107 Doyle Grants, reaching nearly 2,000 students at Georgetown.

The Doyle Diversity Grants program will not be accepting applications at this time due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Faculty teaching undergraduate courses can apply for a Doyle Diversity Grant to support co-curricular activities that engage students with issues of difference and diversity. Both full-time and part-time faculty are eligible to apply for a grant.

  • Submit a 500-word summary of grant activities, which may be published
