Funding Opportunities

The COM Office of Community Engagement will support community engagement through a number of funding opportunities.

Program Grants

Innovation Week

April 25-29, 2022

The COM Office of Community Engagement is teaming up with the Office of Innovation to support one community-focused initiative/program. Dubbed “the start-up model,” the winning team will receive $15,000 towards their innovation with the larger goal being for them to further pursue continued relationship and growth with the community partners after the grant period has ended. Students are encouraged to participate. Learn more about the Innovation Week start-up model grant.

Dream Maker Grant

Are you a student with a dream of doing something, but you need funding to get started? We are here to help! The Office of Community Engagement announces the first round of dream-maker grants for students aiming to be involved in a community-focused project, including research, new program development or existing program expansion. Grant amounts range from $2000-$4000 given once with the potential for re-application the following year. More on Dream Maker Grants.

Educational Training & Conference Grants

The MUSC Office of Community Engagement is pleased to offer opportunities on a rolling basis for travel grants up to $2,500 each to MUSC students. The goal of the awards is to assist recipients in their educational endeavors relating to community engagement, social medicine, health equity and social justice. Travel awards can be used to support conference attendance including registration/tuition, cost of posters or materials used for presentations, hotel and travel.
