The Gallatin Student Resource Fund

The Gallatin Student Resource Fund is designed to provide additional resources to undergraduate students for projects that will foster a greater sense of community at the Gallatin School.


All Gallatin undergraduate students (excluding graduating seniors) are invited to submit proposals to request support from the Gallatin Student Resource Fund. Projects can be renewed for a second year contingent upon successful completion and review of the project during its first year.

Maximum budget per project

Up to $4000

Deadlines for Proposals

  • Fall Semester: November 1st
  • Spring Semester: March 1st

Examples of projects that could be funded include

  • Student community projects
  • Student research projects that allow a group of students to work together on a project, ideally one intended to have a broader community impact
  • Student activities intended to extend learning outside the classroom, such as a community event planned by students in a class
  • A student-planned research conference on a topic of interest
  • A student publication
  • Students who invite a speaker or a panel of speakers relating to a community interest.

Project Timetables

Projects must begin no sooner than the semester following the one in which you apply. Funds will not be disbursed until after the semester in which you apply.

Students must complete projects within 12 months of receiving the award. All applicants who have previously received a Dean’s Award and have failed to complete its requirements will not be considered for another award.

Guidelines for Application

Projects should be focused and specific, and have a definite aim. Some preference will be given to projects involving groups and group activities and to collaborative projects. Student projects that also include faculty, administrators and other suitable mentors are welcome.

Please field specific application questions to Rae Georges at
