The NECHA Grant 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. Grant projects are funded at levels up to $2500. The total number and size of awards will be 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 are especially encouraged. Award monies should not be used to cover indirect costs for the receiving institution. The grantee(s) will present their proposal and outcomes during the 2014 NECHA Annual Meeting.
Two institutions, Framingham State College and Providence College, were awarded grants in 2013.
