Changemaker Catalyst Award Application
The Changemaker Catalyst Fund is open to all undergraduate and graduate Tulane University students interested in pursuing careers related to social innovation, social entrepreneurship, design thinking, and changemaking. Students are eligible for up to $1,500 over the course of their studies to support learning in relevant fields.
To be an effective changemaker, one must have a deep knowledge of the social problem they wish to solve. This award is an opportunity to learn from and work collaboratively with effective changemakers and allies to better understand problems. Funding can be used in many different ways, including but not limited to:
- “Apprenticing with a problem” in an internship or volunteer opportunity
- Participating in an in-depth field immersion experience
- Funding a research project to understand a range of organizations across a sector.
- Attending a conference, workshop, or program
- Purchasing project supplies
Student learning is a critical part of the award process. As such, all awardees must demonstrate a critical analysis of the experience and its role in their academic studies and professional aspirations. All students who receive a Changemaker Catalyst Award must complete this form and a series of blog posts to demonstrate the impact of their award. Please consider the core concepts highlighted by Taylor while developing your application.
Applications are accepted on a quarterly basis on the 15th of October, December, and February. The last deadline is May 1st.
