2020 Community Action Grant

In response to the devastating impact of COVID-19, this grant supports the creation of a project that helps a student’s home town community better cope with the effects of the pandemic. The grant will cover materials, supplies, and other incidentals necessary for the completion of the project. Projects can be short-term (2-4 weeks) or longer term (5-10 weeks) and can be carried out during the spring semester or summer of 2020. Grants can range from $250 – $2,000.

Because of the outstanding student response to the COVID-19 crisis and the strong interest in this grant, all available funds have been awarded and no further applications will be accepted as of May 26, 2020.


All currently enrolled students who have completed at least one full semester.
