The Horizon Fund
The Horizon Fund was established in 2009 by 161 members of the Denison Class of 1959 as they celebrated their 50th anniversary reunion. The Horizon Fund is a permanent endowment to help fund important opportunities for students. In particular, the annual income from the fund will support students who seek curricular or co-curricular learning experiences. The Fund may be used to pay expenses associated with student initiatives, academic or professional development conference registration and travel, service experiences and field study. Funding may not be used to purchase materials for distribution except for educational purposes.The Fund may be used for individual or group experiences, for which there are separate applications and funding guidelines.
Every Denison student who meets the eligibility requirements for the Horizon Fund may submit an application. While each application will be evaluated by the Horizon Fund Board, not every proposal will receive funding. Funding decisions will be based on the merit of the proposal and how the proposed activity aligns with a student's educational goals. Before applying please see the Eligibility Requirements and Selection Procedures for more information.
Applicants should allow two weeks from the time a completed application packet is turned in to receive a response regarding funding decision. Applications for summer programs or activities must be submitted by May 1.
