- Supplies (paint, trash bags, kids' books, etc.)
- Copying and publicity
- Snacks for volunteers during the service experience
Outreach Grants of $300 annually are available to:
Who may apply
- Residence halls
- Sororities and fraternities
- Student clubs and organizations
- Any group of six (6) or more students
Outreach Grant Guidelines
- Service must be direct service - not fundraising or donations. (Staffing a fundraising event for an organization would, however, be considered direct service.)

- Volunteer groups must be six (6) or more students.
- The application is due two (2) weeks before service date.
- Pre-service and post-service reflection activities are required.
- Pre-service reflection should include information about site and clients and reflection activities on related social issues.
- Post-service reflection should occur immediately after service to assist participants in understanding how and why their work is significant
- A draft of reflection activities should be submitted with the application. For help with reflection see below, link here, or email jbragg for more information.
