Criteria and Procedures
Applicants for funds must be full-time matriculated students, must demonstrate the merits of their proposed project or enterprise, must describe its relationship to the academic mission of the College (especially as the activity will enhance the student's education), explain the potential benefit of the project to the larger Skidmore community, and provide a detailed budget request. Each year, the fund may provide up to $5,000 in support for appropriate projects. Plan to allow at least two weeks for the grant request to be considered. Funds may be used only for the purposes designated in the application; any unexpended funds must be returned to the College. Given the limits on available funds, summer projects will not typically receive grant support. Successful applicants agree to file a brief report with the Office of Academic Advising after completing their funded activity. The project should in some integral way relate to the student's academic program. Applicants must also agree to submit a copy of the resulting work as future reference for the Skidmore Community.
All applicants for the Treuhaft Fund for Art Technology should be submitted to the Office of Academic Advising (located in Starbuck Center – Upper Level) by posted deadline.
