Co-Curricular Funds

Awards from the Co-Curricular Fund are available to faculty members, program directors and department chairs in Saint Louis University’s College of Arts and Sciences to support student-centered educational activities that are extensions of the normal classroom.

While there is no maximum award, the amount normally will not exceed $500 per project. Examples of activities that may be eligible for funding include:

  • Class field trips or attendance at cultural events
  • Service projects
  • Student retreats
  • Seminar speakers

The above list is not inclusive, and other student-centered activities will be considered.

The Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences administers this fund. Requests are evaluated based on the activity’s educational value, the number of students to be benefited and the availability of matching funds from your department or other sources.
