Immersion Programs

Social Change Innovation Grant

The Social Change Innovation Grant program is a signature program of our Immersion Programs pillar. Social Change Innovation Grants support Lewis & Clark College undergraduate student-initiated projects and are designed to:

  • Fund effective and transformative social change initiatives;
  • Encourage innovation and creativity to explore what is possible;
  • Equip communities that our students care about, both locally and globally, with the tools required to positively impact social change;
  • Develop and test ideas, solve problems, and create opportunities.

Made possible through the generosity of Patrick Nielson ’71 and his wife Dorris Nielson, grant recipients may receive an award up to $5,000. Five grants will be given annually to an individual or group (undergraduates only) who submits a winning proposal. 

Applications will open again in spring 2023.
