The Fund for LSSU - Giving You a Reason to Give

Congratulations to our 2016 grant recipients!

The Fund for LSSU uses annual gifts to LSSU to address the university’s areas of greatest need and opportunity.

Through a grant process, students and full-time faculty and staff can apply to use funds from the Fund for LSSU for projects that support or enhance student education and the student experience at LSSU.
