Housed in New College at The University of Alabama, the Levitetz Seed Grant initiative is one part of the Levitetz Leadership Program (LLP) made possible through the generous gift of New College alumnus, Jeff Levitetz.

Students in the College of Arts & Sciences may apply for a seed grant to begin a new business or creative project or to further develop one already in production. Two levels of funding are available: 1) up to $500 and 2) $500-$1000.

Students receiving funding will participate in a formal presentation of their project on February 28, 2019 and submit mid-year and final progress reports. Students requesting $500-$1,000 will participate in a “pitch” competition to secure additional project funding.


Follow the link below to the application form. Be advised, in order to complete this application, you will need to provide a full description of your project, budget information, and names of any team members. Given the length of the application, we do not recommend completing it on your mobile device.
