The Student Development Grant is awarded from Fairhaven College Foundation funds to assist Fairhaven students with the material costs of academic projects. Maximum amount of a grant is $100. The selection for these grants is often very competitive, so the more clearly written your proposal is the better chance you have of receiving an award.
The student Development Grant award is made through reimbursement of viable costs through original receipts. In other words, you incur the cost and we will reimburse you for those costs, up to the amount of the award. Submitted receipts should reflect costs directly connected to the project proposed in the application.
Some expenses and activities that are NOT allowed:
You may not make a direct profit from this award.
Reimbursement may not be for food, alcohol or other entertainment expenses.
Although payment for outside lessons is an allowable expense, the person should be an established teacher/instructor, not your friend down the hall.
This grant can not be used to compensate Fairhaven faculty or for an Fairhaven-subsidized event.
The grant will not be awarded for text books.
The Committee may give priority:
1. Senior Projects
2. For proposals from those who have not yet received a grant.
