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 requesting $500-$1,000 will participate in a “pitch” competition to secure additional project funding. Learn more at the LLP’s Seed-Grant Page, linked here.

  • a full description of your project,
  • budget information, and
  • names of any team members.
