Alumni-Student Connections Grant

The Alumni Relations Office is offering the Alumni-Student Connections Grant to student organizations and athletic teams to support the creation of a program centered around community collaboration and connecting with alumni. A limited number of $500 grants will be awarded to student organizations or alumni/community members seeking to develop a project with the goal of bringing Plymouth State alumni and students together in a meaningful way.

  • Use the online application to fill in your organization’s information.
  • Ask your advisor/coach to write a letter of recommendation detailing their support and supervision of the project.
  • Submit a detailed project overview and budget. This budget should outline and explain your anticipated expenses.
  • Your overview must answer the following questions:

    • How does the project bring students and alumni together? This is key.
    • How does the project enhance the community of PSU?
    • What is the intended outcome you hope to see from this project?
    • What is the level of support you will receive from your advisor?
