Funding Your Public Interest Career

September 26, 2018 12:15 PM - 1:30 PM
Funding Your Public Interest Career will explore ways in which students can take charge of creating the resources to pursue their public interest dreams without waiting for a permanent position with a nonprofit organization or government agency. Resources can include applying for grants, soliciting individual donors, throwing fundraising events, creating fundraising boards or advisory committees, starting your own practice, and pursuing fellowships.
