Administered in partnership with Washington University’s Office for Student Success and the Gephardt Institute for Civic and Community Engagement, the Community Engagement Opportunity Fund is designed to remove financial barriers for students engaging in civic and/or community engagement projects throughout the St. Louis community. Beginning in September, and for the duration of the 2020-21 academic year, the Community Engagement Opportunity Fund will expand its operations to include not only civic engagement projects, but also projects that relate to anti-racism movement and social change work in the St. Louis area.
Students are eligible to apply for both one-time programs or continual, long term projects developed in partnership with community.
The Community Engagement Opportunity Fund application is now accepting application for the 2020-21 Academic Year. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis.
