The BC Foundation is pleased to announce the recipients of the
2019 Lockwood Foundation Grant for BC Faculty Excellence & Innovation Award

In April 2019, the BC Foundation awarded $10,000 in Lockwood Foundation BC Faculty Excellence and Innovation Grants to two worthy projects. These grants are made available through a generous donation from the Lockwood Foundation.

Fostering Equity and Inclusive Access: Providing Psychological Assessments for Low-Income Students with Suspected Learning Disabilities
This project was awarded a $1,500 Mini-Grant from the Bellevue College Foundation in December 2018. The Lockwood Grant will be used as seed money in supporting the Counseling Center to provide no-cost psychological assessments to low-income students with suspected learning disabilities. Students who do not have insurance or other financial means to pay for assessments will be given priority.

Faculty Learning Community in VR/XR Curriculum Development
The purpose of this project is to create a Faculty Learning Community focused on using and creating a curriculum that is based on the various forms of virtual reality including extended (XR) and augmented (AR) realities. The project builds on previous Lockwood support and brings more faculty into the practice of not only using VR/XR in their classrooms but actually supports faculty in building their own VR/XR content, which can then be shared to a larger audience.
