Project and Employee Grants Program

The Spring 2017 Cycle will open on February 1 and close on February 27 at 11:59pm MST


EWB-USA is excited to now provide two grant programs for our members’ projects in need of funding:
1) The Project Grants Program and 2) The Employee Grants Program. Both applications are available to preview in PDF form.

New and noteworthy:
Beginning with the Spring 2017 cycle, the grant lifespan for both Project Grants and Employee Grants is now 12 months instead of the previous time frame of 18 months. This means that only trips that fall between April 18, 2017, and April 18, 2018, are eligible for this funding.

Login Instructions: 

If you are applying for a Project Grant, you must login using your EWB-USA Chapter Gmail account. Information has been sent to your chapter officers. All of your chapter’s projects will use this login to create submissions.

If you are applying for an Employee Grant, and applied for the Fall 2016 cycle, login using the same email address. If you have not applied for an Employee Grant in the Fall 2016 cycle, you must create a new login using the Sign Up button to the right. Applications must be submitted through the online portal HERE.
