Many of you are probably wondering why we haven’t announced the Foundation Grants Application Process for 15.16 yet…not to worry, we are still awarding money for this next fiscal/academic year, but we’ll actually be doing it DURING the semester that you’ll be spending it!

The Foundation Grants Committee has decided to change up its timeline for awarding grants and make it possible for recipients to receive the money in the same term that it’s awarded. Oftentimes, faculty and staff are not available in the summer, when we have traditionally started the procurement process; further, awarding money within the same semester allows you, the grant recipient, to use your new item or initiative right away! No more waiting for the next term!

So – stay tuned late summer to learn more about the updated timeline – and start thinking about what you will be requesting! Have a great Spring Term!!

Congratulations to the recipients for 2014-15!  For more than 30 years, the Board of Directors of the PCC Foundation has been proud to support creative, unique projects at PCC through their annual grants program. PCC Foundation Grants are awarded for projects that work toward the improvement of the instructional process, foster innovation in instruction, and align with the Mission Critical Priorities for the college’s Educational Master Plan.
