New Student Programs Now Offers Grants

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

These three areas cover a wide range of possible events and activities.

To apply for funding, students need to submit a grant application, which can be found at the New Student Programs website,

The three funds are being administered by teams of New Student Programs academic advisers and Residence Life hall directors. These teams will review the forms on a rolling deadline and get back to students regarding the status of their 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.
