Next KVCC Foundation grant deadline is Dec. 23
For the 2009-10 academic year, the KVCC Foundation has established funding-request deadlines for internal grant proposals.
Those faculty and/or administrators seeking financial support from the foundation must make plans in advance and adhere to the established deadlines.
Here’s the schedule for the next round:
Proposal deadline: Dec. 23; decision by the KVCC Foundation Board of Trustees, Jan. 29.
Deadline: April 23; decision, May 7.
For more information, contact Steve Doherty, KVCC director of development and foundation executive director, at extension 4442 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Earlier this semester, the foundation board approved a $2,200 grant, submitted by Marie Rogers, Helen Palleschi and Daniel Cunningham, on behalf of the Instructional Development Advisory Committee.
It will co-fund a three-hour workshop for faculty on “What the Best College Teachers Do to Promote Inclusion” next Jan. 7 and the purchase 50 copies of Beverly Tatum’s book titled “Can We Talk About Race.”
It will help lay the groundwork for the Kalamazoo Valley Museum hosting a major exhibition on race in the fall of 2010. The exhibit will be the focal point for a communitywide examination of the racial issues that too often tarnish the nation’s democracy and Constitution.
