"RIT Celebration of Community" Endowed Fund

Established in 2005, this fund provides financial support for programming to bring together hearing, deaf and hard-of-hearing students enrolled in RIT for social interaction.

In order to be eligible for support from the fund for the programming envisioned, students must be represented from a mixture of diverse groups. If less than 11 student groups, at least half of the groups must have active deaf and hard-of-hearing membership. Additionally, the student gruops themselves must participate in fund-raising activities. Funds will be made available based on a specific schedule, which rewards the broadest coalition of groups with greater support than narrow coalitions.
