Since 2006, a total of $313,237 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 who represent both the Presidents’ Club and Foundation Board of Directors selects the recipients.

There were 16 submissions for spring Mini-Grants, totaling $25,063 in requests. All funds allocated for spring 2013 must be expended or encumbered by March 31, 2014. Additional awards are planned for the fall, with a request for applications expected to be sent campuswide in October. For more information, please call Maureen Preuss at 407.708.2429.
