Reading Groups gather regularly to study texts of mutual interest. Some groups are student-driven, some for faculty only, and others are a mix of students, staff, and faculty.
Grants are available for visits to temporary exhibitions or special engagement performances sponsored by museums, libraries, arts presenters, and universities. Funds may be used for travel and admission or registration, but not for material items (books, etc.).

Proposals should include:
- Description of the group's format
- Possible participants
- Tentative schedule
- Projected budget (food, guests, books)
- Explanation of the project’s intellectual scope and relationship to Haverford's academic program
