Individual students and recognized student groups may request financial support from the ODGE for planned events. In order to request funds, write a brief proposal describing the name, date, and purpose of the event, as well as a budget and how it will positively affect MIT graduate students. Complete an ODGE Request for funds form and submit with your proposal at least one month prior to your event.
The ODGE runs a Graduate Student Life Grant program to help support projects that build graduate community at MIT. Proposals are solicited once each year and are due in October; projects may include a series of events, a single event such as a workshop, or may offer a new way for students to connect with each other. See the Grant program pages for more information.
