Cultivating the optiMize community. Bringing people together for transformative education. Creating projects that illuminate possibilities, in passionate pursuit of a just and sustainable future. Practicing love and care in all we do, to help everyone we meet ask themselves, "Why not me?"
We are a student-led organization at the University of Michigan that offers workshops, mentorship, and funding for students to create self-directed projects that make a positive impact. Our primary program is the optiMize Challenge. It's an incubator for students to develop their projects. Projects can receive up to $20,000 - we awarded a total of $215,000 in 2018.
