CE Mini-Grants

This mini-grant program is for student initiatives involving community action. Specifically, projects should support: 

- Strengthening students' civic identity

- Cultivating students' civic knowledge 

- Building students' civic skills

The Center for Community Engagement funds independent activities and/or projects that are not otherwise fully funded by another department or student organization.

Funding is available to current, returning undergraduates; graduating seniors are not eligible to apply for funding for activities that occur after graduation

Funding does not usually support tuition for for-credit courses or workshops leading to certification.

Applications should be submitted at least two weeks prior to the date of the proposed activity or project to CCE Associate Director, Ashley Laux, alaux@middlebury.edu.

Past mini-grant awards have included funding for conference fees, transportation, project supplies, postage, film screening rights, and community-based research expenses. Typical grants range from $25-$500.

To apply for funding, please complete the following forms:

Please note: Mini-grant funding is not available for summer initiatives. For all international internships and service work, please apply for Cross-Cultural Community Service Fund Grants rather than Community Engagement Mini-Grants.
