The Deans Fund for Student Life offers students in the College opportunities to advance their chosen academic and professional goals, as these undertakings serve as an important source of innovation and learning for our campus culture. Funded by donations from generations of alumni, the Fund exists to support and implement student ideas and development while also contributing to the academic and social life of the College.
The Fund supports students and their ideas by sponsoring one-time projects as well as by providing support for the Uncommon Fund. Applicants are encouraged to develop smaller proposals that offer a student or group unique opportunities; students seeking renewable funding should seek the advice of the Center for Leadership and Involvement or their academic department.
Grant amounts usually range from $750–$1,500.
