The Kent State University Foundation Grant Program will award up to $100,000 for the 2014-2015 academic year as part of its annual request for proposals. Funding will be available to departments, schools, colleges, institutes and centers universitywide.
There are no restrictions on the awards, which will be made to projects that have an impact on the quality of education offered to students at Kent State. Requests may be made up to the full $100,000. A committee of the Foundation Board will review all applications and make recommendations to the full board of directors for consideration.
Previous grants as part of this program have included support for the purchase of an IRT camera, funds to update technology and renovate a flexible classroom, funds to purchase equipment for various departments, support of the Successful Transitioning Action Team for Education (STATE) student research project and a nursing simulation lab upgrade.
