Student Funding Programs -- Two programs are available through the Alumni Association. The Community Service Grant Program was established to support valuable volunteer experiences for students and to foster good relationships between the university and the surrounding community. The program supports students who create their own volunteer community service projects or design their own ventures within existing volunteer organizations.
The Student Services Funding Program promotes the student experience at Johns Hopkins by providing funding to student groups or programs, and to support campus events, activities and programs that benefit and involve students from all university divisions.
Both programs are open to undergraduate and graduate students from all divisions of the university. Applications are available at divisional alumni relations offices, the Homewood Office of Volunteer Services in Levering Hall or at the Steinwald Alumni House, 3211 N. Charles St. Applications for spring 1999 funding are due Dec. 1. Applications for summer and fall 1999 funding are due April 15, 1999.
