Proposal Categories

Professional Development 
Multiple grants ranging from $100 - $1,000 each for professional development activities pursued by faculty, administrators, and classified staff in support of professional development enrichment activities that are not required by the college.  Activities must have a demonstrable and measurable impact on students at NVC.  Projects will be funded based on their ability to: support NVCs Student Learning Outcomes and/or Institutional Learning Outcomes to increase student success; apply and maintain college-wide standards of excellence; increase access for students; and/or use new technologies to effectively and collaboratively deliver innovative and effective teaching and learning strategies.

These funds may not be used to purchase equipment or software.

Campus Projects
Multiple grants ranging from $100 - $1,000 each by faculty, administrators, and classified staff for projects, equipment, and/or supplies that enrich student experiences, enhance student success, improve the physical NVC campus, model effective communication and collaboration, and explore concepts, ideas, and principles beyond the campus and its classrooms.  These funds may be used to purchase equipment or software only with review and input from NVC IT and Facilities departments, as appropriate.
