The call for Educational Enhancements awards for 2012-2013 is now open. The application can be accessed via the College website at by selecting “Education Enhancement Grants” and then “Information and Application”.

The committee asks that you please consider the following:

  1. All applications will be considered; however, the committee is especially interested in reviewing proposals that attract new revenue/additional students through distance learning, summer school or winter session.
  2. A Gantt chart is now required so faculty can provide a timeline for completion of project tasks and activities (template under ‘Information and Application’).
  3. In addition to the required written report, recipients will prepare a brief oral report for presentation at a College meeting. This report does not need to be submitted to the ADAA and is meant to showcase project objectives and results, and stimulate additional ideas.

 If you have any questions please contact Gilson Capilouto.
