Opportunity Fund from the Office of the President

The Opportunity Fund will assist students, faculty, and staff in generating positive change in the University and regional communities.

President Ronald Berry, joined by his wife, Dr. Christine Berry, started the fund with a personal commitment of $100,000.


It will be a flexible fund to support a wide variety of activities not typically funded through individual colleges or specific departments. We want to remove obstacles for people creating life changing opportunities for others.

quote from President Berry

A committee comprised of faculty and staff will annually evaluate proposals from ULM faculty, staff, and students to make funding selections. Applications for the Fall 2023 funding cycle will open on September 12th and close on October 17th. List of Fall 2022 Opportunity Fund Awards
