Beha Community Engagement Application
Beha Community Engagement Grant provides funding to support short-term, civic-engagement, student projects. Small, one-time grants of up to $300 for individuals and up to $600 for groups are awarded on a continuing basis throughout the first and second semester to support entrepreneurial student community service projects. Preference will be given to projects relating to art and architecture.
All full-time students and Davis Scholars currently enrolled in classes on the Wellesley College campus are eligible. Students are only eligible to receive one grant per year.
Limitations and exclusions:
This money may only be used for programs that are directly related to community service with a preference given for projects relating to art and architecture. Money cannot be transferred to another project. Unused money must be returned to the fund. Grant funds may not be used for reimbursement of expenses incurred prior to your application.
Grants are not typically awarded to students returning home. Students needing funding to get to and from their volunteer work should apply for a CWS Quick Fix Grant.
Students must complete the Beha Application, an essay describing the project and the organization, a one-page resume, the home page of the Web site of the organization for which you will be working (if available), a verification letter from the agency or project leader on organization's letterhead, and a detailed budget of expenses for the project. Students who are unable to submit a letter because they are waiting to see if they receive funding before formally committing to the project should indicate this in their applications. If the student receives funding she will be required to submit a letter before the grant is awarded.
Applications deadlines for the academic year are:
Decisions on the applications will be sent out 2-3 weeks after the deadline date.
Questions about the application process should be e-mailed to Katie Koski, Program Director, Service, email@example.com.
