1/7/16: For budgetary reasons, the decision has been made to forego the offering of the NECHA Grant in 2016. The NECHA Grant will be reassessed for 2017. For grant opportunities through ACHA, click here.
The NECHA grant was created and designed to assist schools who seek to improve the quality and delivery of student health services as well as promote innovative health programming within New England’s college health community. Typically, grant projects were funded at a level of up to $1500. The total number and size of awards were based on merit, need, and the number of proposals received. Projects that involve student participation and a multi-disciplined/multi-departmental approach to shared concerns were especially encouraged. Award monies were not be used to cover indirect costs for the receiving institution. The grantee(s) will present their proposal and outcomes during the next year’s Annual Meeting.
2015 Recipient: Emily Rosenthal, Coordinator of the Wellness Center at Southern Connecticut State University
