YAPD Grant Applications Now Being Accepted



The Lee University Alumni Office is now accepting applications for the 2017 Young Alumni Professional Development Grant program.

Recognizing that the years immediately following college graduation can be professionally challenging for young alumni, the Lee University Office of Alumni Relations is pleased to offer support through the Young Alumni Professional Development Grant program. The YAPD program assists Lee graduates who have completed their undergraduate Lee degree not more than 10 years prior to submitting a YAPD proposal. Grants are awarded in amounts ranging from $500 - $1,000.

The YAPD Grant program operates on an annual cycle with awards announced Homecoming weekend, which is the first weekend in November. Alumni graduating since 2007 are eligible for a 2017 YAPD Grant. Please submit completed grant applications to alumni@leeuniversity.edu or Alumni Relations Office, Lee University 1120 North Ocoee, Cleveland, TN, 37311 by Monday, Oct. 2. Awards will be announced Saturday, Nov. 4.

If you have questions about the YAPD Grant program, please email alumni@leeuniversity.edu or call (423) 614-8316. To submit an application, click here.

“Lee University is proud of the important work and service that its alumni are providing every day,” said Patti Cawood, director of Lee’s Alumni Relations Office. “With the YAPD Grant program, we are pleased to support our alumni in their calling.”
