Student Enrichment Grant Program

Small stipends (averaging $250) intended to subsidize experiences for motivated students who seek to build their own skills, experience, and aptitude for social change by attending off-campus workshops, conferences, or other personal development opportunities. These grants are much smaller than the PCSE Seed Grants or Internship Grants, but there are more available each year. Please note: Enrichment Grants are not intended to fund internship or internship-like experiences.
