Fellowship Matching Funds Program
The matching funds program has been created to empower WMI Fellowships to raise money and move forward towards the goal of being self-funding and sufficient. WMI is aware that as current students and recent graduates it can be difficult to meet many financial responsibilities.
Through this program, WMI will match member contributions, revenue from income generating projects, funds raised through community initiatives and outside grants to support Fellowships. Funding will be awarded based upon proven funds available by the Fellowship between the amounts of $100 and $500 USD.
WMI encourages Fellowships to use the matching funds to support community-based activities, skill-building, professional development, the creation of income generating activities and group development initiatives.
Applications are accepted throughout the year from WMI Fellowships. To learn more, review the frequently asked questions below and write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
At this time, no outside funding for other groups or organizations will be granted.Apply Now
Frequently Asked QuestionsWhat is matching funding (as known as a matching grant)?
The funds will initially be awarded as a 1:1 match (e.g. WMI will award $1 for every $1 raised, up to $500). With the aim of Fellowships becoming self-sustaining, the matching ratio will decrease in subsequent years.
