The purpose of the Moberly Area Community College Foundation’s Faculty/Staff Mini-Grants program is to support faculty and staff by funding innovative and creative projects that would not normally be provided for in the operating budget of the College. Mini-grant projects should enrich standard curriculum and directly enhance learning opportunities for students of Moberly Area Community College.
Up to eight mini-grants will be awarded per academic year and may vary in amount. An individual as well as a team or department working together may apply for a grant, but the maximum grant awarded will be $1,500 for a specific project. The Committee may award the full or partial amount requested. Faculty and staff may apply for more than one grant per academic year, but each application must reflect a different project. A person may be awarded more than one grant but the total award may not exceed $1,500 in any two-year period.
Any full-time faculty or certified/classified staff member currently employed by Moberly Area Community College is eligible for a mini-grant. Adjunct faculty may submit proposals in conjunction with full-time faculty or staff or with their Instructional Dean’s approval (for faculty) or Immediate Supervisor’s approval (for staff). Examples of eligible projects include equipment, software, research, supplemental materials, enrichment tools, speakers, professional development, and creative projects. .
