Deans Student Grant Program
Dean Linda Abriola has established the Dean's Grant Program to provide resources for student organizations in need of additional funding for conferences, design competitions, equipment purchases, community projects, or activities that simply enrich the overall educational experience at Tufts.
Grant proposals should address several key questions:
How will the funding help enhance academic achievement not only of the participants, but also of the wider Tufts engineering student body?
Proposals that impact a large number of students rather than a select few will be given priority.
What kind of impact could the program or event have on the engineering curriculum?
How might the program or event help enhance diversity in the School of Engineering?
Recent recipients of the Dean's Grants have included:
Requests for support may be for any dollar amount up to $2,000.
Dean's Grant funding is intended for support of student groups and
organizations associated with engineering. Funding for projects done
solely by an individual student OR for curricular-based projects,
done by an individual or group, will not be supported through the
Dean's Grant Program.
Applications will be accepted and considered once each semester, with deadlines of
Friday, October 10, 2014 for fall semester awards
and Tuesday, February 17, 2015 for spring semester awards.
Please download the application form (Word or PDF version) below and return via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Dean's Grant Selection Committee will give priority to proposals that demonstrate that additional sources of funding have been applied for.
Your academic success at Tufts is a priority, and extra-curricular activities should only be pursued if you are succeeding in your classes. Please have your academic advisor, as well as the faculty advisor for the project/event, review the Dean’s Grant application and sign.
