General Funding Application Form

Please note that WPIRG has limited resources and we are unable to approve every funding request that we receive. In order to give the WPIRG Board of Directors adequate time to review your request, submit your application far in advance of your event or project. It typically takes 2-4 weeks for funding requests to be processed.

We have provided our proposal evaluation guidelines so that students and groups submitting funding applications have a sense of how we consider project funding and co-sponsorship.



WPIRG accepts applications for new actions groups throughout the year. If you would like to learn more about being a WPIRG action group – what that entails, responsibilities, and the support WPIRG provides, details are outlined in the below application package. If you review the package and are interested in applying to become a WPIRG action group, please fill out the form below and submit it to our Volunteer and Programming Coordinator at
