“From sports to the arts to the sciences and business, we receive proposals from a broad spectrum of student groups,” Dey Vossler notes. “The students these grants support are so impressive, and we are very proud to be associated with them. It is a privilege to steward these funds. These students represent the university and themselves so well.”   

The grants are funded through the endowed Parents Association Student Enrichment Fund, which was created in 1992. As the association’s leadership group, the council approved the funding awards each year
