Student Engagement Grants

With funds from the Purchase College Association, the Student Engagement Grants support faculty initiatives that increase student engagement with the world beyond the classroom and offer them new venues for interacting with each other. Such initiatives might include taking a class on a trip to a museum exhibit or a seminar off-campus, or participation with a student at a conference. The maximum grant amount is $500, and all full-time and part-time faculty are eligible.

These grants are managed by the Student Success Committee, and the grant application form and guidelines are available on the Student Success site. Please complete the application in full and allow for some turnaround time on funding decisions. If you have questions, please email or call the associate director of student success, Barbara Washington, at barbara.washington@

Annual Student Engagement Award

The annual Student Engagement Award is given to one full-time faculty member and one full-time staff member who demonstrate extraordinary commitment, initiative, and dedication, and whose efforts are “above and beyond” in helping the college serve its students. The Student Success Committee solicits nominations for this award from the campus community via email during the spring semester.
