Leadership-in-Action Grants Committee
The Leadership-in-Action Grants are a unique way to provide students with up to $500 in funding to accomplish small-scale projects or events that aim to improve the health of their peers, the greater UCB community, or local East Bay community. Serving on the Leadership-In-Action Grants committee can be a great way to enhance leadership skills and learn the grant and funding process. Committee members will publicize the program; facilitate information sessions; review and select applications; monitor progress and review grant reports; and coordinate the Leadership-In-Action Grants Symposium at the end of the year to showcase grantee project presentations. Committee members will publicize the program; facilitate information sessions; review and select applications. Learn more here.

Networking and Events Committee
The Networking and Events committee works to create a sense of community among public health graduate students through scheduled events allowing for interdisciplinary networking, as well as facilitating relationships with alumni and public health professionals.

Recent events have included student and alumni happy hours, professional development trainings for SCIL members, a Shadow Day connecting students to alumni and their current careers, as well as the Annual De-Stress Fest at the end of the spring semester.
