Other UT Supports
McCombs Board Fellows
Part of the University of Texas McCombs School of Business, is a student-run organization that places select MBA students on local nonprofit boards as non-voting members for one year. In return for this learning opportunity, the Board Fellows each complete an in-depth project for their nonprofit.
Longhorn Impact Fellowship at McCombs (LIFT)
This program pairs student consultants (Fellows) with sustainable corporations, social enterprises, and nonprofits to solve an impact-focused problem. Projects are completed in 10-12 weeks and must be related to sustainability, corporate philanthropy, impact/ESG investing, or social and environmental innovation. Past projects created impact measurement tools for a corporate foundation, examined new markets for a social business’ entry, and examined the sustainability of funding sources. LIFT is selective and is open only to UT-Austin juniors, seniors, and graduate students.
Texas Grants Resource Center
The TGRC offers consultations and orientations for funding research, for both nonprofit organizations and individuals. Because of the availability of electronic information on state and federal grant opportunities, the TGRC emphasizes private sector funding options and information (i.e., private foundations and corporate foundations/direct giving programs). It has little on-site information about small business startups.
Center for Community Engagement
This UT Center has compiled a list of resources and volunteering opportunities for the community to use. You can find information and resources about COVID-19 assistance, donations, testing sites, and volunteering.

The purpose of the final project is to provide students with hands-on experience working with clients and designing, prototyping, and developing a complex example of a data visualization dashboard.
