SIOP Grant Application
The Student Initiated Outreach Program (SIOP) empowers Registered Campus Organizations (RCO) to participate in student-led outreach to inspire, motivate, and guide historically underrepresented and income-eligible, pre-college youth and transfer students. Student-initiated outreach fosters holistic development for prospective college students while encouraging RCO members to act as dynamic leaders for their communities and accept the challenge of creating a society that provides a quality, culturally sensitive, comprehensive education for students of all backgrounds.
SIOP serves a as steward of state funding for student-led outreach projects. RCOs are invited to submit outreach project proposals through the annual grant writing competition.
