The Dewey Stuit Fund in Liberal Arts and Sciences is an endowed fund created by friends and former colleagues of the College's long-term (1948–1977) former Dean, Professor Dewey Stuit. Its purpose is to promote the development of mentor-protégé relationships between undergraduate students and faculty members.
Students, faculty members, and academic units can request funding for projects that will advance the extracurricular research, scholarship, and creative work of undergraduate students working with faculty as well as promote the development of mentor-protégé relationships between undergraduate students and faculty members.

The College will support at least six projects each year, ideally at least two each in the humanities and fine arts, the social sciences, and the natural and mathematical sciences. Grants to students average $200. Proposals may be made at any time and will be evaluated as they are received.
