Empowering students to do cool stuff
Every year, HEF funds interesting, meaningful, educationally valuable projects proposed by our grant applicants — Hopkins teachers, staff members, and (very occasionally) by Hopkins students.
Now, thanks to a generous donation by an anonymous recent Hopkins graduate and a generous match by his employer (also anonymous), we have the opportunity to provide a grant to one or more student groups each year. After consultation with our new donor, we’ve created The Awesome Fund. This annual $1,000 fund is dedicated solely to new or existing student-run organizations. The clubs must have a designated faculty adviser to assist the club and attend all club-related meetings.
Applications for an Awesome Fund grant follow the same basic process and schedule as other grant applications. Students should submit a Concept Form explaining a project for an existing club or the formation of a new club, along with an implementation plan.
