Blue Start allows for greater connections between our alumni and friends of the university and our current students’ enthusiastic ideas. It enables those associated with Lawrence to combine a number of gifts to support a project that specifically attracts them and it assists students in finding the sufficient funds they need to pursue their goals through innovative projects.
A project must be started, planned, and followed through solely by students. Those students who are searching for funding must apply with our online application and submit it to the Blue Start Committee for review. Applications under consideration will be evaluated on their goals along with degree of organization and commitment displayed by the student.
All you have to do to follow a project is go to the project page you want and observe the comment section located at the bottom of the page. You can pose questions to project leaders and see who else is interested in the project. This is where student will post updates on the project and notify followers of any headway that is made on the project. Ideally, we wish to establish a closer community between our students and the people who support the students’ projects.
