Employee Mini Grants

As funds are available, the Foundation provides staff mini-grants to support innovative activities that advance the College mission. The Foundation seeks to increase involvement in interdisciplinary learning opportunities for faculty and staff and support the Educational Master Plan of the College.  All COS staff and faculty are encouraged to apply for a mini-grant.

It is expected that proposals will:

  • Enhance the colleges' ability to strengthen its programs and services.
  • Support faculty and staff development with a learning community environment.
  • Support the use of technology for enhancing the educational opportunities of students, staff and faculty.
