Question description


Continuing with the scenario presented earlier, your college has experienced a 15 percent reduction in public funding over the past 3 years. Several positions have been eliminated. Some academic programs have been eliminated as have some of the student support services. It is clear that in order for your college to take advantage of opportunities for growth, expansion, and innovation, external funding sources must be identified. You recently participated in a strategy meeting with several college administrators. One of the agenda items was a discussion about external funding sources. Much of the discussion focused on public and private fund sources. At the conclusion of the meeting, there was a widespread agreement that some research should be done to identify multiple sources of public and private funds in the form of grants, endowments, and so on. Each participant in the meeting was asked to research public and private grant/endowment programs and to provide important information to inform the decision about programs to pursue. You agreed to identify two grant programs available through public funding sources such as your state government or the federal government. You also agreed to identify two grant programs available through private organizations. In your Discussion response, indicate the sources you have identified and provide the following information for each funding source you select:

  • How much money is available through the grant and what is the time period for the funds?
  • What programs are funded through the program?
  • For what purposes may the funds be used? What restrictions exist for the use of the funds?
  • Is there a financial match obligation for the college?
  • What other important stipulations are associated with the grant?

The following resources will provide an introduction to grant funding:
