Campus Programming Board (LFA)

Information about the application process and the funding schedule is included in the information provided below. Applications for the 2023-24 academic year will be accepted starting April 16, 2023.



It is the responsibility of the Campus Programming Board to encourage unique and innovative programs; to coordinate cross-campus collaboration and resource sharing; and to help facilitate connections between academic programming and other campus events. The Campus Programming Board considers applications for funding for campus events, in amounts up to $1500 per event.  Applications with substantiated significant campus impact may request more than $1500. All faculty and administrative staff members in the Luther community may submit proposals to the Campus Programming Board. In general, Campus Programming Board will not provide ongoing annual or biennial funding.


Funding of proposals is not automatic. It is the role of the Campus Programming Board to promptly evaluate proposals on:

  • promise of quality
  • relevance to the academic and cultural community
  • potential for relatively broad appeal on the campus
  • connections to academic or other programs on campus
  • support for diversity of student experiences involving a variety of campus constituencies

The likelihood of a favorable response to a proposal is enhanced by evidence of realistic and careful planning. Proposals should include at least one opportunity available to the entire campus community.

General Information

The Campus Programming Board's first review cycle begins in April, prior to the targeted academic year, with a second application opportunity extending through September. If funds are still available, deadlines may be extended beyond September.

Applications received between April 30 and October 1 will be reviewed, with allocation of funds completed by October 16.Applicants who were previously declined may revise and resubmit.
