Funding Support for Events

The Lang Center has a limited budget to fund student requests. Requests are considered on a first-come, first-served basis and may be granted at a portion of the total requested. The Lang Center will not entertain requests for funding once the available funds have been exhausted. The funding provided by the Lang Center must follow the requirements stated below.

  • The proposed activity must be congruent with the Lang Center’s mission.
  • •Awards are generally $50 per request.
  • Funds are transferred to a College administrative account, or distributed as scholarship to students who are not acting on the part of a group with a College account (taxable event).
  • The Lang Center will not entirely fund any activity.

The Funding Request Form [PDF] for funds must be completed and submitted by email to Delores Robinson at drobins2@swarthmore.edu at least one week before the funding is required (if the group applying has a College account) or with at least two weeks lead time for individuals without College accounts needing a check.

A decision will be made by the Lang Center Staff, and announced to the requester by email within two days of the request.
