LEAP Grant Applications

LEAP Grants support MIT students’ public service through funding that can help you carry out a service project such as a volunteer day or philanthropy event. These grants can also help you learn about service and social responsibility or build your skills to tackle a community challenge.
LEAP Grants are not intended to provide comprehensive support. They typically cover one type of expense such as materials, transportation, or conference registrations. LEAP grants may also cover a combination of expenses at a modest level.
LEAP Grants are only available for MIT student service work in the United States.
The remaining fall 2016 deadlines for submission are the following dates at noon:

  • October 3
  • October 31
  • December 5

We will not review applications between these deadlines.
There is also a required minimum lead-time between these deadlines and when you intend to use the funds:

  • 2 weeks in advance for requests other than out-of-state travel
  • 4 weeks in advance for out-of-state travel
