Spring APPLICATIONS ARE DUE THE SEcond friday in FeBruary

Any full-time student attending Millersville University in pursuit of a baccalaureate degree is eligible to apply for a grant.

Because of limited funds, no grant shall exceed $700 (per project) and partial funding may be awarded. A student shall receive only one Neimeyer-Hodgson Grant, and previous grant recipients may not reapply.

If two or more students are working on a project, each student must submit a separate single application with an itemized budget not to exceed $700 (note: each project may not exceed awarding of this amount). It is vital that if students working on the same project submit separate applications, they:

  1. Make the connection to the work proposed in another application explicit.
  2. Must VERY clearly demarcate what part of the project is their responsibility, and
  3. Indicate how their contribute to the overall project but does is not the same as the other students’ work
  4. Demonstrate this division of responsibilities in the budget and budget narrative.

The narrative, budget, and budget guidelines must be as specific and complete as space allows. A complete narrative should include the following sections.

For research or scholarly proposals, the narrative should include:

  • Project Background
  • Objectives
  • Hypotheses
  • Methods
  • Timeline
  • How the grant experience will impact your professional development

For projects in the visual or performing arts, the narrative should include:

  • Project inspiration and background
  • Project purpose and/or related research
  • Learning objectives (if relevant).
  • Timeline
  • Other, related Exhibit or performance opportunities you may pursue
  • How the grant experience will impact your professional development

The narrative section allows a maximum of 10,000 characters counting spaces or approximately 5 double spaced pages, 12 pt times new roman.

This budget section should list necessary supplies, equipment and travel along with accurate costs and a justification for why each item is required for the project. Students should determine the most economical source for supplies. Total mileage needed to complete the project should be calculated as accurately as possible at the university accepted rate per mile. Budgets lacking details or valid prices may result in reduced award amounts.-
