Dartmouth College's Haiti Relief Fund was established after the magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti in January 2010. These funds are intended to support high-impact projects for the benefit of individuals and communities that continue to be impacted by the devastation of the earthquake in Haiti. These might include:
Preference will be given to projects that involve collaboration across Dartmouth's campus and schools, as well as Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.
Proposals should include: a 2-page narrative, a 1-page budget plus justification, a 1-page bio sketch for each individual, and a letter of endorsement from the appropriate department chair or associate dean. Proposals should be sent to Haiti.Relief.Fund@dartmouth.edu by March 15, 2014.
Selection will be made by the Haiti Relief Fund Committee based on the following criteria:
All expenditures must follow Dartmouth policies. Support for undergraduate students, graduate students, postdocs, travel, materials, supplies, and equipment under $5K, are allowable. Grants can be used as matching funds for another proposal, but must be used within one year. Limited faculty salary support may be considered. Tuition is not allowable. Intellectual property and copyright will be handled according to Dartmouth policies.
Award recipients will submit a brief final report (1-2 pages) within 3 months of the grant's termination to the Haiti Relief Fund Committee describing the outcomes of the projects, lessons learned and next steps.
