Internal Opportunities

In-House Mini Grants 

In-House Mini Grants are periodically available to faculty and staff at the college to provide "seed" money to initiate a new, or continue a current, externally sponsored project.

The In-House Program Development Grants are available to support activities that seek to enhance the college's visibility through special programmatic activities. The size of both grant programs is generally modest. In-House Mini Grants and Program Development Grants MUST be linked to either a new or continuing project submitted to an external sponsor. The projects may focus on research, education and/or public-service activities.

Quarterly deadlines, as follows:

  • Second Wednesday in September, November, February, April and June of each year.
