ALTOONA, Pa. — Penn State’s Student Engagement Network (SEN) is accepting applications for summer 2022 student engagement grants. The deadline to apply is March 20.

SEN offers this unique funding opportunity for students which supports the breadth of student engagement experiences in the spirit of both in-person and virtual/remote engagement experiences. Undergraduate students across the commonwealth are encouraged to apply for an SEN Grant that will support virtual, remote, and/or in-person engagement opportunities in the coming academic year (see specific grant cycles). All experiences must follow federal, state, and University policies on health and safety as well as Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines on physical distancing, and should include plans to improve personal growth, professional readiness, and/or social connection/impact.

Students may apply for either a $1000 award or a $2000 award. Successful applicants will receive the requested amount, either $1000 or $2000, to complete their experience during the grant cycle timeframe and are required to participate in a free, non-credit-bearing SEN Canvas course centered on the student engagement journey.
