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.
The official application form can be found here. Take care that all sections are completed in DETAIL.
