Office of New Student Programs Offers Three Grants for Student Events

Students can now apply for new grants to help sponsor events on the Truman campus.

The Office of New Student Programs, through these grants, is looking to bolster three specific types of campus programming. The overall goal of the grants is to increase both the quality and quantity of the events in each of the three areas.

One fund will support events that bring together faculty and students. A second fund will work with programs that celebrate diversity on campus. The third fund is dedicated to supporting student initiated events that are not being sponsored by a student organization or University office. To apply for funding, students need to submit a grant application. Those forms can be filled out and printed from the New Student Programs website, The three funds are being administered by teams of academic advisers from New Student Programs and hall directors from Residence Life. These teams will review the forms regularly and get back to students quickly about the status of their grant applications.

New Student Programs serves the academic needs of first-year and transfer students as well as on-campus residents engaged in cocurricular learning. Their services include academic advising, tutoring, study skills development and specialized courses. New Student Programs is funded through academic tuition and an annual allocation from Residence Life.
