" To receive any funding (we are not funded directly by the school), it is imperative that students run the organization. As we only have three members, I feel like I am an essential part of keeping this foundation and all the opportunities it offers alive at Rollins College. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: The Student Support Foundation
The Student Support Foundation provides emergency grants of up to 200 dollars to students in need. Our mission is to provide students with the resources that allow them to pursue their educational goals and remove obstacles that would prevent them from completing their educational journey.
This year alone, we have given financial assistance to over 30 applicants, funding such activities as cultural immersions and transportation to educational conferences. Our membership has also doubled, and awareness of our foundation has risen significantly. In fact, we are scheduled to be featured on our college's social media stories in the upcoming weeks.
We have successfully created policies and procedures to protect our peers’ privacy. We are also reaching out and partnering with other college campuses to elevate our own resources, and are working to create additional resources for our peers in need in a way that can be replicated at other institutions. We have come a long way, but this is only the beginning.
