Center for Student Diversity

Community Enrichment & Enhancement Partnership Award

The Community Enrichment and Enhancement Partnership Award (CEEP) is administered by Towson University's Center for Student Diversity (CSD). CEEP (pronounced KEEP) is designed to increase the access and success of culturally diverse and traditionally under-served undergraduate students.

  • To foster an environment that appreciates and values an increasingly diverse student body
  • To increase the recruitment, retention, and graduation of underrepresented students
  • To develop student interest, involvement, and leadership in community-building initiatives

Award Amount
CEEP Award recipients are usually granted between $2,500 - $3,000 per year. The award may be renewed for up to four (4) years.
