The Grass Roots grant program is a mini project grant that encourages students to explore their service passions. Students apply for a grant, and through meetings with the Volunteer Services Coordinator a course of action is planned and students are awarded funding to begin their process.

Apply for your grant!


As a result of participation in the Grass Roots grant program participants are able to:

  • Learn valuable skills in grant writing, budgeting and program planning;

  • Understand and educate others about a particular issue and its impact on the present community.
