Citizenship Scholarship: $3,000

Fund a scholarship to help four immigrant facilities workers in the Georgetown community achieve U.S. citizenship. 

Financial barriers make applying for citizenship inaccessible to many of the people who single-handedly keep our university functioning. Through a partnership with the Kalmanovitz Initiative for Labor and the Working Poor (which will screen and interview candidates) and the D.C. Schools Project (which will provide tutoring for scholarship recipients), we hope to subsidize the citizenship process for four eligible facilities workers in order to thank some incredibly important members of our Hoya family.

 

 

The Hoya Special Project:  Tracing the 272:   $3,750

The Hoya seeks donations to fund a week-long trip to Maringouin, Louisiana, to do original investigative reporting into the lives of a community of descendants of the Georgetown 272. According to estimates, upwards of 75 percent of the population of just over 1,200 in that small town are descendants of the slaves that were sold to keep Georgetown university afloat in 1838. Now, 180 years later, The Hoya will investigate the socioeconomic effects of the sale.

Leavey Beergarden: $3,000

As part of the last Campus Plan, the Leavey Esplanade is now an on-campus open-container area where students over the age of 21 can drink alcohol. Since Fall 2017, the Esplanade has also been home to the new location of The Corp's Uncommon Grounds coffeeshop.

Help us continue to transform the Esplanade into a hub of social life and community by funding a heat lamp, six beer hall tables from Oktoberfest, and a custom set of cornhole boards. 

 
 

 

Hoya Hub: $3,000

The Hoya Hub aims to provide a safe, comfortable, and sustainable space for Georgetown’s graduate and undergraduate population to access food resources. The pantry will be open to anyone who considers themselves food insecure at any moment at Georgetown, and we will not restrict access to any member of the student population. We will run and maintain a clean and functional space to the best of our ability in order to ensure that any student who needs the pantry will feel comfortable using it and aim to reduce the stigma associated with being food insecure. Please donate to help give all Hoyas an opportunity to have a happy and healthy time on campus!
