several sponsors of the program.
|Thanks to the generous support of corporate and individual sponsors, the Foundation is increasing funding for its Innovation Grants Initiative for the second straight year. The program provides financial resources of up to $3,500 to faculty and staff to implement programs that broaden the scope of the curriculum, deepen the college experience and improve student achievement. This year the Foundation will award close to $75,000, up from $50,000 last year. Along with the growth in funding, the number of awards will increase this year as well.
“We are pleased to be able to fund 24 grants this year that represent a broad cross-section of disciplines across the college’s campuses,” said Foundation Innovations Grants Committee Chair Steven Shepard. A selection committee, comprised of representatives of the college and the community, reviewed each of the grant applications and made the selections. This year’s recipients are:
