The CEE Alumni Community Service Endowed Grant Fund will be instituted and overseen by The Center’s Alumni Council, which continues to seek new ways to maintain and strengthen the connection between CEE and its alumni. Applicants will be asked to submit a proposal for a community service project that they are planning to work on during their summer break, and the grant will include a $1,000 stipend in support of the recipient’s project.
CEE Alumni who are currently in 10th, 11th or 12th grade.
All eligible CEE Alumni will receive the application packet via mail. The application is due May 3, 2013 (DEADLINE EXTENDED).

Application Review and Award Selection:
A Community Service Grant committee, comprised of CEE Alumni Council members, will review all applications. Council members who have children who are eligible for the grant will not be allowed to serve on the grant committee nor will they be allowed to vote. Applications will be kept anonymous by the CEE’s Alumni Office.
Upon review the Community Service Grant committee will suggest at least two applicants for consideration. The entire Alumni Council will then be presented with the applicants for review and a final vote. An interview (in person or by telephone) may be requested.
The Grant recipient will be notified in May.
Post Project Follow-up:
The Grant recipient will be required to write an essay or prepare a presentation detailing their volunteer service, and how it bettered the community and themselves. The essay or presentation may be published in a CEE newsletter and/or sent to all donors to the Grant fund.
Use of Funds:
Grant recipients will be awarded $1,000 in the form of a stipend. This money may be used to fund a project or to provide monetary support for the awardee while they are volunteering.
In the event the Grant is no longer awarded, the Alumni Council will plan another way to use the funds to benefit the alumni community.
