The Career Center recognizes that our students from historically underrepresented groups have continuously faced discrimination and inequitable access to career related resources throughout their life. The Career Center is committed to addressing this inequity and supporting our students achieving their professional development goals by providing the Equity Grant. The Equity Grant provides students from underrepresented groups with access to funding for professional development activities, expenses for professional attire, or covering travel expenses to attend a professional interview (just to name a few).
Students can access up to $1000 annually for these professional needs and must submit a grant application found on the Career Center’s website. Grant applications are reviewed monthly at the beginning of each month. When a grant application is accepted, students will be notified to discuss the potential repercussions of receiving the grant funding. Funds over $100 can have an impact on a student’s financial aid situation. Once the student understands the financial implications of accepting the grant, funds will be distributed about 2-3 weeks later. Funds will be distributed through the CU Denver Financial Aid team or through reimbursement of expenses incurred by the student.
Did you know that you can use your work-study award off-campus at a local nonprofit organization?
Meet Astrid Flores, a current CU Denver student who is taking full advantage of this opportunity.
At Project VOYCE (Voice of Youth Creating Equity) I have been able to contribute my own strengths and knowledge on social outreach, while also learning to effectively manage volunteers and interns. My expectation is that at Project VOYCE I will be able to further develop these skill sets and continue to expand on others that could be beneficial to the workplace and life at large. I am also very grateful that Project VOYCE works with me to make sure that my work schedule is flexible enough to accommodate my needs as a full-time student. If you are a student who is interested in getting involved, we offer volunteer and internship opportunities that work to help youth lead projects and campaigns. For more information please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
