The President’s and Provost’s Student Initiative Fund

The President’s and Provost’s Student Initiative Fund is available to all recognized Columbia University student organizations. It provides financial support to projects which benefit the University community through first-time initiatives that foster inter-group communication, collaboration, and educational programming on campus. While this fund generally supports new and innovative programs, organizations that received funding in the past are encouraged to apply for funding for any new initiatives.  

Each semester the President and Provost make $10,000 available specifically for funding undergraduate initiatives. The review committee currently includes representatives from Columbia College, Barnard College, Columbia School of General Studies, and Columbia Engineering. Each semester this committee is charged with awarding funds to those applications that best align with these goals.  

A project or event should:

  • Be a first-time event and/or program
  • Cross school and university boundaries
  • Benefit the University community
  • Promote inter-group communication and collaboration
  • Be cultural, educational, or social in nature


  • The initiative must occur during the eligibility period.
  • The initiative should be organized and hosted by a recognized student group(s) in good standing with the university.
  • The initiative should be held on campus (Morningside or Medical Center).
  • The initiative should be advertised and open to the University community.
  • The initiative may be artistic, cultural, educational, or social.
  • Funds awarded may only be applied to event as described on application.

Information and applications are posted on the Lerner Hall Web site during the first two months of the Fall and Spring semesters. For further information, please refer to the University Event Management Web site. You may also contact treasurers@columbia.edu
