Funding overview

As per our mission statement, APIRG provides working group, student and community members with funding for research and social engagement projects in the public interest. Read about our Direct Funding Policy here. 

In addition to funding, we provide administrative, informational and technological resources to help students transform social concern into effective action. We also facilitate opportunities for skill development through internships, educational events, workshops, public campaigns and partnerships with community organizations.



There are two funding rounds each year, Fall (deadline last Friday of September) and Winter (deadline last Friday of January). 

The next Event/Project/Research and Working Group funding deadline is September 25, 2020. Microgrant funding applications can be submitted at any time.
