BOMB Student Activism Grant

A grant for student-led organizations at CUNY that are fighting and organizing for access to public education.

Beyond Organizing Movement Building (BOMB) is a collective of students dedicated to the self-education and leadership of the CUNY community. BOMB began in the spring of 2010 and managed to successfully organize a series of skill-based community organizing workshops, a summer intensive for activists, and a successful fundraising campaign.

BOMB members have decided to create the Student Activism Grant to further support the organizing efforts of current student activists at CUNY.

As organizers, we know first hand how important financial support can be for student activists and their organizing work. Often times because student activists are directly challenging the administration or the institutional inequities of the university, they are not able to receive the same funding that most student organizations/groups are eligible for. Student activists at CUNY are also consistently juggling different roles, multiple responsibilities, and the general hustle that being an organizer and student often requires. This is why we wanted to create a grant that would be accessible and specifically for student activists at CUNY.

IN AN EFFORT TO BE TRANSPARENT, WE WILL BE AWARDING THREE GRANTS OF $500 EACH.

To be eligible for funding, applicants must:

  • Be a student-led organization or group
  • Have a home base campus that is part of the CUNY system
  • Organize or educate people to take action.
  • Encourage alliances and collaboration among social change organizations
  • Promote innovative approaches to organizing
  • Interested and committed to developing organizational and organizer sustainability

How to apply:

  • Carefully read and complete grant application
  • Send completed application to cunyhunterBOMB@gmail.com
  • APPLICATION DUE DATE: APRIL 29th
