The Havens Award

The Havens Award is designed to provide non-traditional summer learning experiences for engineering students. These non-traditional learning experiences are opportunities for education and personal development other than those provided in traditional course work during a regular academic year, or summer program. A non-traditional learning experience is also one that is not available at Lafayette College, and would not be possible without the support of the Havens Award. Learn More about the Havens Award.

Dan O’Neil Engineering Design Award

This fund is named in honor of Daniel Patrick O’Neil ’06 whose life was cut short in the tragic shootings at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. It is with heartfelt remembrance of Dan that this scholarship is offered to support engineering students pursuing senior projects such as individual research, honors work, or their own design projects. Students are recommended by faculty and selected by the director of the Engineering Division.
