About the Innovation Grant: These annual grants are awarded by the Virginia Western Community College Educational Foundation. The maximum award is $10,000, and projects are expected to be finished in about 10 months (May 2019 to March 2020). All members of Virginia Western faculty and classified staff, including adjunct faculty and part-time employees, are eligible to submit proposals. The deadline for applications is March 29 … but there are key requirements due before then, so don’t delay reading the application closely and reaching out if you have questions. Note that in order for your grant proposal to be eligible for consideration, you must meet with grants office staff (Stephanie) at least once for guidance in completing the application. Previous workshops fulfill that requirement.
