New Grant Program Recognizes Alumni

Winning Victories Grant provides monetary support for innovative wins beginning in 2018

YELLOW SPRINGS, Ohio – Jan. 5, 2018 – Antioch College is pleased to announce a new grant program, the Winning Victories Grant, designed to support alumni initiatives that impact quality of life, public good, social justice and the environment in local, national, and international communities through three awards: one $50,000 grant and two $10,000 grants. Intended for all types of initiatives, including business, entrepreneurial, and non-profit, the Winning Victories Grant was envisioned and funded by Antioch College Trustee Matthew Morgan ’99.

Horace Mann’s plea to Antioch College graduates in 1859, “Be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for humanity,” still resonates with Antiochians today. Alumni in all walks of life seek to live out these words in a variety of ways. With this inspiration in mind, the Winning Victories Grant seeks to support and reward Antioch College alumni who are having a positive impact.

“Generations of Antiochians have used their education to enact real change in our world. We're delighted that Antioch College is able to offer substantial financial awards to alumni in recognition and support of innovative initiatives which win victories for humanity and the planet,” said Antioch College President, Dr. Tom Manley. “We are grateful to Matthew Morgan '99 for making this possible.”

The success of Antioch College and the compelling story of its revival as a new kind of American college is due to the support of alumni, their perseverance, and their belief in the value of an Antioch education. The Winning Victories Grant provides a way for the College to support alumni in return, including recent graduates.

Initiatives considered for the Grant may be led by a single alum or a collaborative effort including at least one alum in a primary role. Applications may also be submitted on an alum’s behalf. Applications for 2018 Grants are due March 12, 2018. For more information about the Winning Victories Grant and the application process, please visit the Antioch College Alumni website.
