The Student Academic Affairs Board (SAAB), established in 1982, is a unique part of student government at Lewis & Clark.
Possibly the only of its kind on an American college campus, SAAB is composed of one student representative from every academic department and functions much like a nonprofit organization within Lewis & Clark.
Students present their proposals before the Board, which then reviews the applications and determines funding.
Not only does SAAB allow students to conduct cutting-edge research, but it also gives them real-world experience by emulating the grant processes used by many nonprofit organizations.
In over three decades, SAAB has awarded more than $1 million to more than 1000 projects.
