Since 2006, a total of $296,168 has been awarded to support mini-grant requests! 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 from the Foundation Board of Directors select the recipients.
There were 38 submissions for fall Mini-Grants, totaling $53,438 in requests. All funds allocated for fall 2012 must be expended or encumbered by Sept. 30, 2013. Additional awards are planned for the spring, with a request for applications expected to be sent campuswide in April. For more information, please call Maureen Preuss at 407.708.2429.
