Conference Grants

  • PCSE Conference Fund

    The Patricelli Center awards small grants (up to $500) for students to attend social impact or entrepreneurship conferences such as these. PCSE conference grants are intended to support students who seek to build their skills and networks by attending off-campus events.

    Applications will be reviewed within 10 business days and may receive partial funding. Grants will be awarded on a rolling basis until the fund is depleted each academic year. Applicants are encouraged to read our primer and meet with a PCSE advisor to talk about ways to get the most out of attending a conference. All grantees will be expected to submit a public report for the ENGAGE blog reflecting on the conference experience and offering advice for students who may want to attend in the future.

Social Impact and Entrepreneurship Grants

  • Map The System

    Map the System challenges students to think differently about social and environmental change -- starting with understanding a problem and its wider context, rather than jumping straight into a business plan or an idea for a quick fix. One finalist/team from Wesleyan will receive funding to attend the Global Final at the University of Oxford and compete for cash prizes to continue their work.
