Awesome Fund: Empowering Student Clubs to Do Cool Stuff

Supported by a generous Hopkins alumnus, a matching donation from his employer, and the family & friends of Ethan Lang


The Awesome Fund provides modest grants to registered new or existing Student Clubs (with a faculty adviser). We aim to fund Student Clubs to pursue ideas/projects that:

  • help other students,
  • enhance the community, or
  • keep students involved in school and/or enhance students’ educational experience

Thanks to our generous donors, we plan to distribute around $2,000 in Awesome Fund grants in the 2017/18 school year.


Student leaders of new or existing Student Clubs are encouraged to apply for an Awesome Fund grant on behalf of your club. Work with fellow members of your club, as well as your faculty advisor (who must sign the application).


Apply by the following deadlines:

  • October 6, 2017
  • December 4, 2017
  • January 31, 2018


It’s easy! Complete our one-page application form and e-mail it back to us. You’ll find suggestions for good grant ideas and instructions on page 2.
