Your role as a committee member would be to review all grant applications prior to the committee meeting and attend the committee meetings for approximately four hours to make funding decisions. This opportunity offers you the chance to make a valuable contribution to the campus community while building your resume for the future. This volunteer position requires that you read each cycle’s grant applications and attend monthly grant meetings. Committee meeting dates can be found here: Grants Date Schedule
