NECHA 2014 Grant Information

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 2015 NECHA Annual Meeting.

7/1/2014: The application window for submissions in 2014 is now closed. Submissions are being reviewed over the summer and recipients will be announced in the fall issue of NECHA e-News. Grants will be formally awarded at the NECHA 2014 Annual Meeting: Making Waves in College Health.

Two institutions, Framingham State College ¬†and¬†Providence College, were awarded grants in 2013. They will be presenting at this fall’s 2014 Annual Meeting.
