The purpose of this grant is to support faculty and staff in the design and implementation of mutually beneficial partnership activities. These are one time awards to underwrite start-up or initial expansion costs. For existing partnerships, funds should be used to create activities that include students from departments or colleges not currently involved with the partner(s) and/or to significantly increase the number of students impacted by an existing initiative. A newly proposed activity and partnership should fit into one of our sectors of focus: the arts, health care, education, or business and industry. Priority will be given to projects that impact the greatest number of students and programs. We expect awards to range between $5,000 and $20,000 per project. The funds will be made available after July 1, 2017 and can be expended during the fiscal year, which ends on June 30.
