Employee Grant Guidelines
The Durham Technical Community College Foundation invites grant proposals aligned with the college’s strategic goals twice each year from faculty and staff. The Foundation will entertain requests for program needs, student activities, campus improvements, and instructional equipment and supplies.
Proposals will be accepted April 15 for consideration at the May meeting of the Board of Directors, and October 15 for consideration at the November meeting of the Board of Directors. Typically, grants of up to $2,500 are awarded.
Prior to proposal submission, please submit a brief letter of inquiry to Durham Tech Foundation Executive Director Melissa Chappell. Full proposals must be endorsed by appropriate department and division heads.
Proposals will be reviewed by the Foundation’s Distributions Committee in May and November. Grant applicants will be asked to make a short presentation to the Distributions Committee; the Committee then determines what recommendation to bring before the full Foundation Board at its next quarterly meeting. Applicants will be notified of the funding decision reached approximately one week after the full Board meeting. All funded proposals will require a fiscal year-end report and/or a final report, including an evaluation process and project outcomes.
Letters of inquiry, grant applications, and grant reports should be submitted to the Durham Technical Community College Foundation.
Please complete electronically, sign, and submit via e-mail or campus mail.
