Instructions & Application


Note: DAPA Grants applications are closed for the remainder of the semester and will be re-opening at the start of the fall semester.

Step 1: Complete the application by the Tuesday before your party at 12:00pm EST. The application can be found here: Apply for a DAPA Grant

(Please note: This form is the ONLY way to apply for a DAPA Grant now. We do not accept any applications submitted to the [email protected]. We hope that our application makes the process quicker and more enjoyable for you.)


Step 2: Applicants will be notified of awards by Thursday of the week for which they applied.


Step 3: Fill out reimbursement forms and submit receipts to AODS (7 Linden St) within one week of your event. You will be reimbursed shortly thereafter.



The DAPA Grants Committee looks at the following criteria when making decisions on applications:

  • Specifics: Be as detailed and thorough as possible. Our decision is likely to be more favorable if we have more information.
  • Consumption: Think about how much money you plan to spend on alcohol (if you will be serving it) and consider spending a comparable amount (if not more) on food and non-alcoholic drinks. Our program looks to fund parties that offer a source of substantial food (not just chips, cookies, etc.).
  • Timing: DAPA grants are awarded to registered parties that occur during high-risk drinking times on campus (i.e. Thursday-Saturday nights). We look for parties that are thrown on social evenings.
  • Thoughtfulness: The more effort and thought that you put into your application, the more it will stand out to us. Take time to explain how your event is both a safe social activity and reduces high risk drinking. Be genuine.
  • Creativity: Throw an event that stands out.
  • Punctuality: Due to the high volume of applications and in fairness to applications submitted on time, we will not read applications submitted after Tuesday at 12:00PM EST of the week for which you are applying.
