About Service in the City (SiTC)

SitC grants are intended for student initiatives with a focus on service and social impact that run over a semester (e.g. 6 months) or longer. Students interested in engaging with similar issues for a shorter period over the summer break should consider the Social Impact Fellowship.

Many great ideas start with the first step. Regardless of where you are in your ideation process, speak with the CIPE advisor to scope your project, ascertain grant eligibility or goodness-of-fit.

Complete the Idea Introduction Form, and the CIPE advisor will be in touch. SitC applications are accepted all year-long.
