Student Initiated Projects
The Student Initiated Projects (SIP) Fund is an exciting resource that sponsors student-designed activities and events that fall outside the traditional WWAC budget.
These projects and activities foster additional learning and student engagement – whether in the arts, in social or in cultural issues, to name a few. Grants will not be awarded to primarily social functions. Examples include speaker events, documentary screenings, and cultural outings. They can be initiated by any student and must benefit the WWS and or/or broader Princeton community.
Grant typically range between $50-$100 to cover such expenses as food and beverages, and any necessary materials. Grants will not exceed $200 per project. Projects with cost share (monetary or in-kind) from other sources are highly encouraged. Ideally, proposals should have addressed alternative sources of funding before approaching SIP.
Students should fill out the streamlined one-page application form, including the budget, and email to the SIP Chair before advertising the event. SIP request will typically be answered within 48 hours. Should the event receive funding, students must promote the event to all WWS students and/or the broader Princeton community and indicate “Funded by SIP and WWAC" in their advertising. Students are requested to take pictures at the event and send them to the SIP Chair no more than 48 hours after the event.
To receive reimbursement, students will submit receipts of their approved expenditures to the Treasurer’s mailbox in Robertson, along with a completed Student Voucher form.
