School of Arts and Sciences Cocurricular Fund

Awards from the School of Arts and Sciences Cocurricular Fund are available to support student-centered programs inside and outside the classroom that enhance and expand educational activities for undergraduate students and/or offer opportunities for meaningful faculty-student interactions. Such programs and events might include guest lecturers, field trips, attendance at cultural events and artistic performances. Faculty members, program chairs and department chairs are welcome to apply. 

A portion of the funds is provided by the Class of 1961 Annual Lecture Endowment Fund.

Review and Award Process

The dean of the School of Arts and Sciences administers the fund, in consultation with the division heads and the Senior Associate Dean of Academic Affairs.

Requests will be evaluated based on the following three criteria:

  1. The activity’s educational value.
  2. The number of students who will benefit.
  3. The amount of prior funding received by faculty member or program/department (to ensure breadth of distribution).

Note: The School of Arts and Sciences will continue to prioritize activities that can contribute to our understanding of structural racism and development and implementation of anti-racist initiatives.
