Community Impact Fund Events and Application

Application for Funding

Applications open through Friday, May 17, 2019

The Grad Center Community Impact Fund was designated by the Provost's Office to support graduate student initiatives and activities that build a community of mutual respect and intercultural understanding on campus. In particular, activities that address racial, cultural, or gender-based bias are to be supported with this fund.

Language Chats

Join other grad students for weekly informal language chats! These are not language classes, but are instead a fun way for speakers to practice their skills and meet new people. All participants should have conversation skills in the chat language they are attending.
