President's Innovation Internal Award

If we are to be successful in making Vision 2015 a reality, we need dreams, ideas, and new ways to work.  The goal of this fund is to support small, innovative projects organized by an individual or small groups of employees. Innovation awards are typically not for college-wide initiatives.

 

  • Individual awards may be for up to $10,000. For projects that may take longer than one year to implement, applicants can request up to two years of funding, for a total of $20,000.
  • Applications must directly apply to one of FRCC’s strategic priorities.
  • Payment may be used for hourly pay, reassign time, supplies, materials, curriculum development, training, and events. Cannot typically be used for travel.
  • Applications must include measurable outcomes and an assessment plan.
  • Preference will be given to projects that are creative and stretch our imagination, for projects that involve part-time faculty, and for projects that encourage cross-departmental collaboration.
