What is the Lehigh After Dark Event Activity Fund?

The Lehigh After Dark Activity Fund has been established to provide support for programs that provides students with quality social, cultural, intellectual and community development activities that do not focus on alcohol and are open to the entire Lehigh community.

Lehigh awards funding to student groups on an ongoing basis for events held on or off of Lehigh's campus, and may be used to cover a variety of activity expenses that include food, security, transportation, facility rental, publicity, or prizes.
