Accessing Funds

Accessing Funds

Dwight Hall at Yale Member Groups are expected to seek funding from a number of different funding sources, where applicable.  Typically, this means that groups should apply for funding through the Undergraduate Organizations Committee (UOC).  The Yale College Dean’s Office also has a helpful list of possible funding sources and deadlines.

Dwight Hall funding comes from these sources:

Campus and Community Fund

The Campus and Community Fund is available only to DH Member Groups, who must remain in good standing throughout the academic year. Member groups may apply for up to $1,500 each semester in order to support their service activities. This money, usually $30,000, is managed by the Finance Coordinator, in coordination with Network Coordinators and the Co-Coordinators.

Social Innovation Prize

With the launch of the Social Innovation Lab, DH has announced prize money will be rewarded to students and organizations that have dedicated themselves to pioneering social change through inventive and sustainable ventures. Typically, awarded prizes are born out of service and social justice experiences and build on relationships in conjunction with communities outside of Yale University.
