Deadline for Special Project Grant Applications

The RCC Foundation (RCCF) is pleased to announce its 2017/18 Project Grant Ap­plication process. Special funding is set aside annually (if available) by the RCCF to sup­port individual department project goals and needs that may not otherwise be funded.

In 2015/16, the process was not initiated because the Foundation used those funds to support the RCC bond campaign. How­ever, in 2014/15 over 12 projects ranging from language books on tape to educational software, gym equipment, molecular models, and benches were funded.

Primary consideration is given to projects that can show existing resources in the pro­posals and to projects that will have a great impact on student success.

This year the Foundation has $20,000 to be disbursed for various projects in amounts (yet to be determined) based on the number and scope of requests submitted.

Applicants will be required to make a case for their requests through presentations to the RCCF subcommittee.

Applications are available from the Foun­dation. The deadline to submit proposals is 5 p.m., Friday, April 21, by email or hand delivery to Jodi Simons, assistant director, RCCF,, ext. 7294.
