CSGC Grants

Imagine: Deerfield Academy is offering you hundreds or even thousands of dollars to be creative about improving your community, the environment, the political process, public services, or some other aspect of life in your community.  How would you propose to use that money? This is your opportunity to present your ideas to us.

The CSGC offers two types of grants: CSGC Grants and Micro-Grants.

CSGC Grants:

These grants invite Deerfield Academy students to serve others. Offered through the generosity of the Cost, Earle, Mendillo and Workman families, the funds are provided to honor the call in our Mission Statement:

A vibrant, ethical community that embraces diversity, the Academy prepares students for leadership in a rapidly changing world that requires global understandingenvironmental stewardship, and dedication to service.

Be worthy of your heritage, Deerfield students, and advance positive change!


Through the CSGC, students can apply for up to $150 to fund student-generated projects on and off campus during the school year.
