The Caltech Y enriches student life and challenges students to grow into responsible citizens of the world.
The ACT Award gives motivated Caltech students an opportunity to receive a stipend to engage in the cause of their choice. The recipient of the ACT Award will explore a cause or issue during spring term, engage in the cause over the summer through an internship or volunteer work, and then lead a campaign to educate the Caltech community during the following academic term. From the challenge of feeding thousands of homeless living on the streets of Los Angeles to the devastating impact of AIDS in Africa to the complexity of addressing immigration issues and the U.S. position on climate change, the issues facing today’s society are abundant and pressing. This is your opportunity to decide what you are passionate about and to take a proactive role to address that issue!
