AVDF Private Higher Education Grants

The higher education program seeks to strengthen private four-year liberal arts institutions that place strong emphasis on teaching and whose students choose majors in the humanities, science, and math. Support generally will be reserved for schools of broadly acknowledged academic excellence in the liberal arts and sciences and a solid record of financial strength. A few grants are also made to larger teaching and research universities with a national reputation for excellence in graduate and undergraduate education. The foundations also have an interest in helping to improve programs at historically black colleges, those that primarily have a Native American student body, colleges in Appalachia, and similar schools that provide opportunities for traditionally underserved students. Joint proposals from two or more colleges that share a program or facilities are also of interest.
