Student Funding
Special Projects
What is special projects?
A new initiative is underway! Special Projects, run by AJ Kourabi and Hannah Fabik, is where you can ask for funding on personal side projects and online certificates.

No more getting stuck in your goals because of pesky money problems! The MES encourages students to achieve their dreams, and this is one way we can help you with it.
