The William H. Parks Family Center for Environmental and Outdoor Education maintains a Program and Access Endowment Fund with the Cortland College Foundation to help cover expenses involved with SUNY Cortland student groups using the facilities at Raquette Lake for educational or group development purposes. These funds are awarded through a competitive application process administered jointly by the CEOE Advisory Council and Center staff. Funds can only be applied to program, travel or room and board expenses for completed programs. There are no provisions for "cash in advance."
Students enrolling in academic classes that have a component at Raquette Lake with an attached fee are eligible for this grant. The grant funding applies only to the course fee in the fall or spring but may be applied to tuition for summer and winter term courses. Awards are based on financial need and are competitive.
