Service Mini-Grant Application
Faculty, staff and students involved in service activities may apply for mini-grants to help supplement their approved service projects. Grant requests up to $1,500 are available. Funds may be used to support expenses such as supplies, transportation, meals or food items related to the event, facility rentals, and contracted speakers. Funds cannot be used for individual participant stipends. Service events and projects that support experiential learning and academic courses will receive priority funding, yet all students are encouraged to apply. Applicants will be notified on award status within two weeks of proposal submission. Requested allocations will either be distributed via direct payment of project expenses, or processed as reimbursements upon the CCE receiving receipts. Projects not fulfilling intended outcomes may result in reduced or revoked funding. Applications will be accepted throughout the year or until funds are depleted. For more information, contact: Dr. Daniel Kittle, 319-352-8697.
