Program 1

Campus Grants Program

The Campus Grants Program provides funding for unique projects that enhance teaching and learning and projects that provide program enhancements or special services that are not typically funded through the College’s budgeting process. The campus community is invited to submit proposals based on a yearly cycle. The Foundation strives to fund a variety of projects that impact as many constituents and students as possible as well as support the four cornerstones of the Colleges mission and vision: Education, Economy, Culture and Community.
