Activity Fund

The Jefferson Scholars Program has a student activity fund that scholars may draw upon to attend cultural events such as plays and classical music concerts both on and off campus. To use the student activity fund, you must:

1) select an event and get pre-approval from Assistant Director Erik Dempsey,
2) attend the event in a group comprised of more than one Jefferson Scholar, and
3) submit one receipt for the event to the Jefferson Center office in Mr. Dempsey, together with the JSP Activity Fund Reimbursement Form. For example, if you go to a play, one person should collect money from the entire group and that person will be reimbursed for all the tickets.
