SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT! The EDGE Grant Application period has been extended until February 15th, 2023 - Just in time for #EngineersWeek!
The Engineering Development and Growth Experience (EDGE) grant program supports collegiate Phi Sigma Rho members involved in hands-on science and engineering-based projects. These grants will support technical projects led by sisters of Phi Sigma Rho that will ultimately develop their leadership, financial, and project management skills. Fundable programs include FIRST Robotics, groups dedicated towards building go-karts, robotics, cement boats, rocketry, and more.
One $1,000 grant will be awarded based on the opportunity for personal, team, and/or educational growth, the number of Phi Sigma Rho sisters involved in the project, the feasibility of the proposed project, and the impact of the awarded funds on the project success. The proposed project must be a hands-on, science, or engineering based, extracurricular activity that is not a part of a capstone project or academic course.
EDGE Grant applications are available online now through February 15th. A Phi Rho member must apply through the Phi Rho Portal. Project teams must consist of at least 1 Phi Sigma Rho collegiate member, with a high preference towards teams with 3 or more Phi Sigma Rho collegiate members. Solo projects organized and led by a Phi Sigma Rho member are also eligible for funding. Projects that are either in the planning stages or partially completed prior to the grant period are eligible for funding. Only 1 grant application will be accepted per project. APPLY TODAY!
