Mini-Grant Program for Faculty and Staff

The objective of Mini-Grant program is to provide support to faculty and staff as they engage in strategies to promote their own professional development, and/or student success.   Any faculty or staff member may apply for funding.  The Foundation budgeted $2,500 for mini-grants in 2021. The intent is to fund several smaller grants throughout the year. The total budget request from any one faculty or staff member should not exceed $750 per academic year.  Funding will be provided on the basis of the rationale presented in the proposal.  Preference will be given to proposals submitted by individuals or groups that have not received a Mini-Grant in the past year.  Each applicant must provide a written report upon completion of the Mini-Grant.
