The purpose of the EMCC Innovations and Learning Grant is to support projects that are designed to grow the learning college and promote student success. Grants are available to all employees and can be used to support innovations and great ideas either within or beyond the classroom. These projects are supported on a one-time basis in the form of stipends for employees (i.e. faculty and staff). Proposals must clearly address the learning college questions of “How does this affect student learning?” and “How will we know?” When applying for an EMCC Learning Grant, applicants are strongly encouraged to collaborate within and across divisions and areas of the college to impact student learning.
Proposal are submitted to FRACTL Chair no later than the Friday of the third week of March.
