Who We Are
CONNECT is a signature student consulting program of the LBJ School’s RGK Center for Philanthropy and Community Service.
Our program lives up to its name, connecting talented UT graduate students with nonprofit organizations tackling complex problems. After scoping data and program evaluation projects with nonprofit leaders, we recruit graduate students from all 13 colleges across campus, personalize the matching process, and award fellowships to participating students.
Since 2019, the CONNECT Program has successfully matched 257 graduate students from across campus with projects, awarded over $384k in fellowships to participating students, and provided over $1.9 million worth of high-quality, actionable deliverables to 136 different local, national, and international nonprofits and community organizations.
Support Student Changemakers
Funds raised during 40 for Forty will support fellowships for graduate students participating in CONNECT, increasing the number of students and nonprofits served by this program.
Thank you for helping our students CONNECT for social impact!
