- PCSE Sponsorship Fund
The Patricelli Center aims to cultivate an ecosystem of "practical idealism" across the University. Students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community partners who share this goal are invited to apply for small co-sponsorship grants from the Center. These grants of $25-500 are designed to subsidize initiatives that benefit undergraduates and contribute to the social entrepreneurship ecosystem at Wesleyan. Examples include: bringing a guest speaker to campus, hosting a networking event, attending a conference, building a website, and more.
Note: We will begin accepting applications on October 1, 2016, and close applications whenever our 2016/2017 grant fund is depleted. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
