Eagle Endowment Turning Passions into Projects

Eagle Endowment Official Logo

Many students and student groups have great ideas for projects that benefit communities, but lack the funds to put them into action. This is where the Eagle Endowment steps in! Through our prestigious grant program, we provide AU students with annual grants ranging from $100 to $1000, along with a year of dedicated mentorship.

This award-winning grant program is designed to foster and support student groups in their early planning and implementation stages. We serve as a launchpad for your visions, offering vital seed funds that empower you to embark on impactful service projects. Throughout the school year, we offer two distinct opportunities for funding:

  1. Fall Grant - "Back to School, Back to Service"
  2. Spring Grant - "Spring into Action"

If you're eager to make a difference but unsure of how to start, we're here to guide you. Reach out to us via e-mail at eagleendowment@american.edu, and let's collaborate to turn your ideas into meaningful actions that leave a lasting impact on our communities. Together, we can create positive change and empower the leaders of tomorrow.

Spring Grant Cycle – “Spring Into Action”

Eligibility for the grant program extends to students and student groups across AU's diverse undergraduate, graduate, and Washington College of Law programs. 

The Spring 2024 Grant Cycle is scheduled to commence on January 16th and conclude on Feburary 9th.

Throughout the open Grant Cycle, interested students can apply by completing the virtual application provided below. We look forward to receiving your innovative proposals and are available to assist you throughout the application process. You can reach out to us via email at eagleendowment@american.edu or visit us in person at MGC (Mary Graydon Center) 273.
