Through the annual program, which is sponsored by the Stephan D. Weiss Foundation and the Weiss Fund, a single grant will be awarded to support a student’s efforts to promote and improve the quality of mental health care available to college students. The Weiss Award is intended to encourage the development of creative initiatives that will enhance mental health service delivery to students and which can be replicated at other colleges or universities. The award will support programs that can demonstrate measurable success in student retention for those whose mental health problems might otherwise compromise the quality of their college experience and jeopardize their ability to graduate.
