Noonan Endowment Award
The application period is now open for Noonan Grants for Fall 2013 activities. Properly signed applications must be received by SEPTEMBER 20, 2013 and awards will be announced approximately three weeks later. Guidelines and forms can be accessed at the bottom of this page.
The Noonan Endowment Fund was established to supplement classroom instruction and to encourage and facilitate academically related programs and activities for the enrichment of students at Millersville University. Preference for funding is given to programs involving active student participation at state or national meetings, activities that benefit large numbers of students, and activities that are cross-disciplinary in nature.
Typically, the committee has approved funding for active student participation in conferences and performance competitions, field trips, and programs bringing speakers/consultants/activities to the campus for the benefit of large numbers of students. Generally, grants are limited to transportation, registration, and admissions fees. The committee does not fund meals and lodging; these costs must be borne by the student or another sponsoring group. Noonan requests may not exceed $500.00. In addition, activities required for classroom instruction, course, and/or degree requirements are not funded by the Noonan Grant.
Please TYPE the official application form and take care that all sections are completed in DETAIL. The committee needs to understand exactly what your group plans to do and how the proposed activity will enhance the educational/cultural experience of participants. Under the "Budget" section, list your projected budget for the activity, DETAILING the breakdown of the expenses, as well as the amount requested from the Noonan Fund, and state how the remaining expenses will be met. If specific details and proper signatures are not provided, your application will be rejected.
