Grants

The Grants committee works with the initiatives in The Vassar Haiti Project to seek further funding through grants. The committee of engaged students do valuable grants research and submissions. Past grants have helped fund reforestation efforts, water purification, and education support. The committee hopes to continue establishing close partnerships with outside institutions to aid our partners in Chermaitre.
