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.
