ICEO Grants

Twice a year, the ICEO offers funding for events and programs that support our community in any or all of these themes:

  • Promoting a sense of belonging
  • Enabling achievement
  • Expanding our campus composition

These three pillars support the goals of the Strategic Action Plan.

Awards of up to $2,500 are available to any MIT community member.
