The Foundation's Mini-Grant Program was created to provide full-time faculty and staff with financing for projects not supported by their regular department budgets. Awards are funded by Presidents' Club donations, and a committee of members that represent both the Presidents’ Club and Foundation Board of Directors select the recipients.

There were 30 submissions for spring Mini-Grants, totaling $46,468 in requests. All funds allocated for spring 2014 must be expended or encumbered by March 31, 2015. Additional awards are planned for the fall, with a request for applications expected to be sent campuswide in October. For more information, please call Anna Robinson at 407.708.4573.
