EdP Small Grants

EdP Small Grant project -- book club

The Education Partnerships (EdP) team at the Haas Center is awarding grants of up to $1,000 to students with education-based community outreach and research proposals that can benefit youth in low-income communities.

Applications for 2018 EdP Small grants are now closed and currently under review.

Overview

EdP Small Grants are intended to enable Stanford students or student groups to develop activities that connect service interests and ideas in education with the overall EdP mission of achieving educational equity. Typically a proposal can be from an individual Stanford students or multiple individuals and/or include collaboration between EdP programs.  It can be in collaboration with any existing or new program that reflects EdP's overall mission.

We encourage you to consider forming a project, especially one that would not be possible without this funding, that goes beyond your current work with youth or your peer volunteers. If a project is potentially sustainable over the course of several years beyond this funding phase, you will be asked to include a short description of the long-term impact.

Small Grants are available to support a wide array of activities, including but not limited to projects, lesson plans, workshops, and tools that enrich community youth and families. Applications should clearly describe the nature of the project, who and which programs will be involved, and the timeline and budget of the project. Before turning in the proposal, applicants are encouraged to  contact any EdP Small Grant committee member to discuss their ideas.

Details

A proposal can be from an individual or multiple individuals and can be in collaboration with any existing or new program that reflects EdP’s overall mission.
