Changemakers Student Fund

The Citizens Board launched its Changemakers Student Fund, formerly known as Select Projects Fund, in September 1997 to collectively impact the University of Miami’s schools, colleges, and departments. Over the past 24 years, the Citizens Board Changemakers Student Fund Committee has allocated more than $1 million to University faculty, students, and staff to enhance the student learning experience and expand the University’s valuable services to the community. Each year, individual Citizens Board members make donations to directly support this Fund.
