Ty Harrison Fund

In memory of Faculty Emeritus Ty Harrison, Westminster College created the Ty Harrison Environmental Fund to support environmental learning and action among students. Current students can apply for up to $500/year to start a project on campus or in their community. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis.

Funds will be released for reimbursement once the event or project is complete and the final report is submitted to the Environmental Center's Sustainability Project Database (within one month of project completion). Funding will not be awarded for event food unless the food itself has a direct role in student learning or action.

Application for Funding

To apply for the fund, submit the application form. For questions, contact Kerry Case, Environmental Center Director, at kcase@westminstercollege.edu.

Support the Fund

Generous donors support Ty’s legacy and ensure that the fund can continue making environmental learning and action possible for Westminster students. Give in support of students by choosing the “Other” category and entering “Ty Harrison Fund”.
