The Lowery Institute Change Agent Tank was created for college students as a mechanism to mentor and fund initiatives that result in service to the community in a real and tangible way often impacting and aiding the community-at-large. In its 6th year, students will compete in a “Shark Tank'' like process to earn up to a $10,000.00 grant to fund their initiative.
The Change Agent Tank has funded the creation of Mimi’s Pantry, a campus pantry serving students in Atlanta; Voice, a podcast; mentoring programs and events.
