You're passionate about building a thriving Swarthmore College community
If you want to scale an existing project it must address one of the following: Environment & Sustainability, Education & Access, Arts, Media & Culture, Identities, Inequality & Human Rights, or Economic Development & Leadership
Swarthmore College will provide access to a budget of up to $500 per project to fund the delivery of your Swarthmore College Community Challenge.
Once you apply and begin the 30-Day Challenge, the ChangeX platform shows an automated breakdown of funding allocated or ring-fenced for you as $350 to start and $150 on completion of your project - which is cool! However, for the Swarthmore College Community Challenge 2021/22, Swarthmore will administer the $500 budget allocation internally, so check with the Garnet Collaborative Team on how to draw down the ring-fenced $500 budget for your project ([email protected]).
