Do you have an inventive idea for a unique project, but lack the resources to make it a reality? Mad Money Grants are a new source of funding for ASA-approved clubs and groups. Funded by donors as part of the Senior Gift Campaign’s Alumni Gift Challenge, this program could provide your group with a one-time grant to fully fund a special project or travel.

  What kind of project? You tell us! Mad Money grants range from $2,000 to $10,000.    The only requirements are:
  • Your organization is a recognized club or group at MIT
  • You have a great idea for your organization, but lack the funds to make it a reality
  • You need funds to complete a specific project or for a one-time, non-recurring expense, such as capital purchases, travel, or events and activities
The Student Organizations, Leadership and Engagement Office (SOLE) will review applications. You will be notified via email.   If you're selected: 
  • If your application is awarded a grant, representatives of your organization must attend an information session.
  • You must complete your project by May 30 of the school year the grant was awarded.
  • After your project is complete, you must submit a project summary to SOLE with quality photos and/or video.
  • Grant recipients will be recognized at the Student Leader Awards in May.
