KVCC Foundation News Deadline for Mission-Promoting Grant is Jan. 19

Deadline for mission-promoting grant is Jan. 19

An endowed grant, established to help KVCC achieve its mission of teaching and learning, has been expanded in scope, and the deadline to apply for it and other funding opportunities available through the KVCC Foundation is Monday, Jan. 19.

What had been known as the “Endowed Faculty Grant” has been renamed the “Endowed Faculty/Student Grant” as the request of President Marilyn Schlack.

Established on Dec. 28, 2001, under the auspices of the KVCC Foundation and funded through the president’s office, the initiative was modified this October.

“Teaching and learning is the core of what makes KVCC special,” says Steve Doherty, executive director of the foundation.  “Hence this endowed fund was established to encourage new ideas that will enhance our mission and centralize a focus on teaching and learning. 

“The new wrinkle,” he said, “is that, in addition to faculty members, students in good standing are now eligible to apply for the funding through the KVCC Foundation.

One such grant will be awarded each academic year and the amount will be determined by available funds.  A foundation committee will select the recipient from the applications that are received.

More information about application procedures is available by contacting Doherty at extension 4442 or at sdoherty@kvcc.edu.

The next grant-submission deadlines for the KVCC Foundation will be May 8.
