HDH Grants

Why apply? Check out this “thank you” letter from our resident students!

Dear Mr. Cunningham,

I wanted to take the time to thank you for creating the HDH Housing Grant. Because of the grant, my colleague and I were able to plan and host a picnic for Sixth College residents. It allowed us to create a fun social program, where we got to know one another, relax, and have a great meal. The picnic was very successful and the residents greatly enjoyed the boxed lunches from HDH Hospitality Express. Again thank you so much; we really appreciate it! We are extremely grateful to you and HDH.

Yours sincerely,
Arlene Ngor and Andrea Fong

HDH RA/HA Programming Grants

Due to the unanticipated demand for increased on-campus Housing in 2013-14, HDH will be providing additional funding for programming. These funds are specifically for RA's, HA's, and Residence Life para-professional staff. They are intended to be in addition to the annual funding already provided to the Residence Life offices by HDH. The available funding will be broken out equally over the three academic quarters, and each project may qualify for a maximum of $2,500.
