Center for Public Leadership Student-Led Leadership Funding Request
Application to Request Funds for Student-Led Conference
Criteria: CPL provides funding support opportunities for students engaging in the practice of leadership and hands on experiential learning through student-led conferences on the Harvard campus. Our focus is on student-led conferences, which allow students to exercise leadership.
CPL does not fund student-led treks beyond Leadership Service Seminars (LSS’s) as Centers that provide financial support for treks assume liability for the trip.
CPL does NOT fund journals since other Centers provide ample funding opportunities for research and student journals; CPL provides a unique opportunity to focus on the “practice of leadership.”
Applications must demonstrate strong student leadership, impact on the HKS community, alignment with CPL’s strategic priorities including leadership development, social innovation, diversity / inclusion, and behavioral insights. Students are also asked to provide a detailed budget with other sources they will tap for funding; the percentage of the overall budget that would be supported by CPL; and how CPL will be acknowledged through outreach, promotion and materials.
