The Community Engagement Challenge
The Rochester Center for Community Leadership invites UR student organizations to apply for Community Engagement Challenge grants. These grants of up to $500 are intended to support projects that build and strengthen ties between the University and the City of Rochester.
Recognizing that many UR student organizations already have a strong history of performing service activities in the Rochester area and elsewhere, grants may be used to expand current efforts or develop new initiatives
Funds may be used to cover the cost of transportation and/or materials for a community service project, or the cost of training that will help an organization to improve its ability to engage with the community.
The grants will be awarded by a selection committee that includes students, alumni, faculty, staff and community input. Special thanks to the Class of 2011 for their generous donation that makes these grants possible.
Congratulations to our past Community Engagement Challenge winners!
