SEAPAX offers small grants to community-based projects in both the State of Washington and countries around the world. SEAPAX supports projects and organizations which promote cultural understanding, global education, immigrant communities, and community service projects. In 2022, SEAPAX will award two $250 grants.

Selection Criteria

  • Feasibility and sustainability
  • Community need and involvement
  • Anticipated impact

Other Considerations for Approval

  • Community contribution must be at least 25% of the total budget, either monetary or in-kind.
  • Urgent needs related to emergency relief are evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
  • Given SEAPAX’s mission to fund community-based projects, individual student scholarships will not be considered.
  • SEAPAX Bylaws allow Board, committee, and general SEAPAX members to submit grant applications if there are no conflicts of interest or personal monetary gain.

  • Applicants who are RPCVs currently involved with an organization in the State of Washington
