CRS University Engagement and the Catholic Campus Ministry Association are jointly offering small grants of up to $3,000 to Newman Centers, Catholic Centers, University Parishes, or other groups seeking to serve Catholic
students at non-Catholic campuses.
The objective of providing these funds is to advance our Catholic mission of working toward the global common good by cultivating student leaders through newly formed CRS Student Ambassador Programs within campus communities.
Appropriate projects will draw on the programs and resources of CRS University Engagement, oriented toward the establishment of a CRS Student Ambassador program via leadership training, kickoff events, recruitment and marketing, and other startup funds to create and sustain this student leadership initiative. Projects that promote collaboration across campus (i.e., between academic and student life areas), reach a significant portion of the campus population, incorporate advocacy and have a digital and traditional media dimension are highly regarded.
Projects must involve students in a significant way but must have a faculty or staff sponsor. Proposals will be accepted through June 15, 2018 and should be oriented toward implementation during the Fall 2018-Spring 2019 academic year.
