For Nu (Ad)Ventures: Wild Idea$ Fund
Do you have a creative idea? Want to make it a reality? The Wild Ideas Fund is a new $25k pool for creative/new projects & events.
As an alternative to existing sources of funding, we seek to eliminate barriers to student-led programming and projects and assist peers in executing creative endeavors successfully while seeking to avoid conflicting scheduling of events. It’s OK if you do not have group recognition, ASG status, or a SOFO account. The Wild Ideas Fund is for everyone!
Wild Ideas proposals have an unprecedentedly fast turnaround: submit proposals by Thursday, and hear back by the following Thursday (subject to exceptions). Submit proposals here, and send any questions to the WIC at WildIdeas@u.northwestern.edu.
Before the Wild Ideas Fund, the 10k Initiative and the Project Pool were successfully used for many new initiatives as well as the improvement of previously existing programming. Examples include:
The Wild Ideas Committee will review proposals, distribute the Wild Ideas Fund, and guide groups/students along in their projects. WIC 2014-2015:
