BC Foundation Grant Programs

BCF Mini-Grant applications will be available August 2014
Lockwood Foundation Grant applications will be available November 2014

The Bellevue College Foundation runs two grant programs: BC Foundation Mini-grants and the Lockwood Foundation Grant for BC Faculty Excellence and Innovation.

BC Foundation Mini-Grants are open to faculty, staff and administrators and are given to support ongoing projects, one-time projects and new programs that may not be eligible for support through other college funding sources. Preference is given to projects that are consistent with the college’s strategic plan as well as the President’s and Foundation’s priorities and goals. The program is funded by donors to the BC Foundation, including many BC faculty and staff. Applications for the 2014-2015 Mini-Grants will be available in August 2014. The deadline for application will be in early October 2014.

The Lockwood Foundation Grant is open to faculty members and is given in support of new or ongoing projects that promote innovation in teaching and/or advance entrepreneurial models at the college. Typically, individual grants will range from $2,500 to $10,000. These grants are made available through a generous donation from the Lockwood Foundation. Applications for the 2015 Lockwood Foundation Grant will be available in November 2014. The deadline for application will be in February 2015.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact Susan Kingsbury-Comeau.
