Have an idea?  Get it funded.  Put it into action. 

The Action Fund supports civic engagement projects proposed and led by students in direct collaboration with local community-based organizations. The projects all have action components, fulfilling unmet needs of Twin Cities’ communities, as well as learning/education components that promote reflection on and sharing of lessons learned. The students leading the projects recruit other students to be involved in the project. Students may apply for $100 to $1,000.
