Humanitarian Projects Grant

This grant is for students or student-organizations providing service to the on-campus community, the Appleton community, or the world at large. The grant is to be used for specific projects while upholding Lawrence University’s mission of providing service to and learning from the community.

The Humanitarian Projects Grant is supported by the LUCC committee on community service and engagement (CCSE). The CCSE is a made up of representatives from volunteer-oriented student organizations and members of the Center for Community Engagement and Social Change (CCE), and is a network that aims to promote volunteerism on campus. If approved, each application will be endorsed and supervised by this committee. The applicant will be expected to meet with the CCSE to approve the application and present the endorsed proposal to LUCC general council. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis until the Friday of 7th week each term. Grant money will be allocated by LUCC shortly after a successful proposal to the  LUCC general council. Applications submitted after 7th week will not receive the grant allocation until the following term.

The student/organization is expected to communicate occasionally with the CCSE throughout the project, especially at the deadlines proposed in this application. When the project is completed grant recipient(s) are expected to give a report to the CCSE as well as attend an LUCC General Council meeting to summarize and advertise the success of their service project. 

Any questions can be directed to the chair of CCSE, Heidi Kroth. Please feel free to email her at
