Our Spring deadline is confirmed for Monday, March 27th, 11:59pm. To receive funding by late May, apply here. This is your last chance during this academic year to apply for a CSF grant larger than $1,000. Our three month application process includes two phases: a preliminary Letter of Intent (LOI) and a Full Proposal contingent on LOI approval. Your LOI is meant to illustrate the general narrative of your idea and how your project work ties into the CSF Project Criteria. In order to submit an LOI, you do not need to have every implementation and budget detail worked out yet (however that does make your project feasibility more convincing). Our application process is designed to help you fine-tune larger scale project ideas and you can expect to recieve constructive feedback before subsequently creating your Full Proposal. If you have any questions, email CSF Outreach Coordinator Veronica Guenther at As a CSF student staff member, she does not vote on budget allocation, and therefore, she can help you as much as possible in crafting your application. Please reach out!

We also allocate funds to grants under $1,000 through our Mini Grant rolling cycle. Unlike our large grants process, Mini Grant applications are accepted anytime throughout the year and we guarentee a two week approval turnaround. This process is ideal for small capital projects and time-sensitive educational events.
