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 - $1000 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 Freshman Service Experience Grant to continue service at your FSE site, 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.
