Grants & Funds
The Leverett Marsden Hubbard Family Teaching Faculty Sabbatical Travel Fund named for former Wilbraham & Monson Academy Trustee Leverett Marsden Hubbard was established in 2001 by his son Leverett Hubbard. The purpose of the fund is to help reward and retain full-time upper school teachers at the Academy. The fund provides travel grants of up to $5,000 to full-time teaching faculty members who have completed five years of classroom teaching and who will return as a classroom teacher the following year.
Travel must be mission-based (tied to culture and education) and take place outside of the United States. The grant’s purpose is to help faculty become more aware of the interdependent world in which we live and to develop an understanding of different countries, especially those from whom our nation has derived our culture and heritage.
Created in 2008 by Mr. Leverett Hubbard, the fund supports the travel of Wilbraham & Monson Academy students to England so as to instill in them an appreciation for English history and culture. Four students in good standing are selected each year based on an essay application outlining their desire to travel. Preference is given to students who have not yet traveled outside of the United States.
