Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine announces service fund applications


Grafton – Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University is currently taking grant applications for the ninth annual Cummings School Service Fund, which supports nonprofit organizations in its host communities of Westborough and Grafton.

Applications are reviewed on an annual basis by the school and given priority based on their ability to address community-identified needs. Projects with relevance to education are encouraged. Applications for FY2019 fund awards are now available at:

“The Cummings School community values the important role our local organizations and programs play in enriching Grafton and Westborough,” said Joyce Knoll, V.M.D., Ph.D., dean ad interim, of Cummings School. “As local community members and parents, we consider ourselves fortunate to live in this region. We look forward to having the opportunity to recognize these initiatives again in 2019.”

Requests for funding should be submitted no later than Thursday, May 30, for consideration for funding in the current fiscal year, which ends June 30. A committee comprised of Cummings School administrators, faculty and staff meets annually to review proposals and select grant recipients, and will inform requesters of its funding decision by June 30.

The Cummings School Service Fund grants typically range from $200-$500.

Any proposal for project or activities is welcome.
