The Foundation for Seminole State College's Mini-Grant program is designed to provide financial support for projects, programs and services not funded through employees' regular department budgets.
The scope of the Mini-Grant must support the mission of the College and have a direct impact on Seminole State students. Approximately $40,000 in funding is made available each academic year. Currently, applications are requested twice a year – once in the fall and once in the spring.
A campuswide announcement containing details about the process and a Mini-Grant application will be emailed to all College employees at the start of each award period. Traditionally the process begins in October for fall and in April for spring. All full-time faculty, adjunct faculty and staff are eligible to apply. All College policies and procedures apply to the Foundation Mini-Grants.
Mini-Grants are supported by Presidents' Club donations. A committee of Foundation Board of Directors members chooses the grant recipients. The maximum award amount given to a Mini-Grant recipient is $2,000 per submission period. The committee's goal is to award as many grants as possible to eligible employees.
