THE EAGLE ENDOWMENT: MOVING IDEAS INTO ACTION

While many student groups formulate thoughtfully developed ideas for public and community service,few actually have the funds to put them into action. The Eagle Endowment will address this challenge and empower AU students by providing over $5,000 in annual grants of $100 - $1,000 to students and groups that propose such initiatives. 


These one-time awards are intended to support groups in their earliest planning and implementation phases, providing them with seed funds to launch visions for service. Read more about our past grant recipients. There are three different opportunities for funding throughout the school year: the "Back to School, Back to Service" Grant, the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Grant to promote social justice, and the Spring Grant that supports all types of public and community service initiatives.

Martin Luther King, Jr. Grant

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Grant is awarded every year to students with innovative service project ideas that have an impact beyond the AU community. Undergraduate, graduate, and Washington College of Law students & university-recognized student groups are highly encouraged to apply! Grants are awarded from $100 - $1,000.

 

Grant proposals are being accepted until November 29th, 2017.
