Harris-Veit Artists’ Grant Fund Will Support Student Work
A $200,000 gift from Joan A Harris and Steven W. Veit to Hampshire College has established an endowed fund that supports grants for Division III (senior) projects for students concentrating in studio arts.
The goal of the Harris-Veit Artists’ Grant Fund is to help students from diverse economic backgrounds with funding to buy materials for their projects and to host gallery shows that exhibit their Div III work.
“During our son’s years at Hampshire, we came to appreciate how the requirement for devising and completing a Div III project served to focus his artistic interests and energies in a way that has served him well since graduation. With this gift, it’s our intention to provide an ongoing source of funding that will support Hampshire students in their efforts to produce Div III projects that stimulate and fulfill their creative artistic imagination,” said Veit.
