Student Funding

The Office of Community Engagement provides multiple opportunities for students to seek funding which supports their work in community.

Community Engagement Grants exist to develop students as active citizens and to support communities in achieving their own goals by funding students' community engagement efforts. Students may apply for up to $2,000 in funding over Winter and Summer Break as well as $1,000 to support work in the local community during the academic year. 

 Branch Out Reorientation Grants support students who have been involved in a Branch Out alternative break and want to deepen their alternative break experience by connecting to local issues after their break trip.  In the process, Reorientation Grants help develop students as active citizens and support communities locally and elsewhere in the US in achieving their own goals.

Funded Local Internships offer students an opportunity to grow professionally and as active citizens while serving as capacity-building interns for local community organizations. Community organizations develop focused internships during fall, spring, and summer, and selected students receive a grant to complete the internships.
