For FY18, the Program Development Grant (PDG) Committee will review requests under $1,000 every month and requests of $1,000 or more every other month. (Months where requests in excess of $1,000 will be considered are: July, September, November, January, March, and May.) Most awards for FY18 will be capped at $5,000. Priority will be given to SWE Organizations that demonstrate a high financial need.
