Student Organization Grants
The Asia‐related centers at Harvard University offer grants to undergraduate and graduate student organizations for projects relating to individual countries or spanning multiple countries in Asia. These grants are offered on an ongoing basis; however, organizations are encouraged to apply as early as possible as funds are limited. Student groups are invited to apply to SAI for funding once per term for academic and social events.
Grant proposals for academic events will be prioritized over social events. Academic events must have Harvard faculty involvement. This may be direct participation by a Harvard faculty or faculty advisement on the content of the event. The average grant support for academic events is $500, while the average grant support for non-academic events is $250.
Grant applications for larger amounts will be consider if the following criteria is met:
- The event or project applied for is a collaboration between two or more student groups.
- The subject matter represents multiple countries in the South Asia context.
- The subject matter represents multiple disciplines related to the South Asia context.
