Benedictine University was one of 15 institutions in the United States to be awarded a Federal Help America Vote ("HAVA") grant in 2009. BenU received a $55,000 grant for the recruitment, education, and training of undergraduate and graduate-level students to serve as election judges. The first semester of the program more than 300 Benedictine University students participated as election judges, and many of these students were retained and worked as election judges for the following election cycle.
