Grant Funded Programs

Barry University recognizes that true change, growth, and leadership come when our internal resources are leveraged for maximum impact. As a result, the University pursues various funding opportunities from federal, state, local government, and private corporations and foundations. More specifically, the CARE Center seeks grants that support the University’s mission to serve under resourced and underrepresented populations.

The CARE Center currently offers the following grant funded programs:

  • Community of Healthy, Active, Motivated, Positive Students (C.H.A.M.P.S.) - The overall goal of the program is to equip youth with social, emotional and cognitive skills that promote personal and academic success so that they are can develop into C.H.A.M.P.S..
