Need Money? It's Time to Start Thinking about a 2014 Xerox Grant STEM Project!

Do you teach or work with students in a STEM or Applied STEM related program?  Do you have an idea you want to try but need funding to make it go?  A Xerox Grant may be the answer.  In spring 2012 Xerox made a generous gift in support of STEM related events and activities at MCC.  Applications for 2014 projects are now being accepted by the Grants Office.  The committees are anxious to receive proposals and will consider any idea related to STEM. 

Faculty teaching in STEM and Applied STEM disciplines along with staff members supporting these areas are invited to submit applications for funding for projects.  Potential projects may involve student or faculty research, development of new curriculum related to STEM, professional development that enhances faculty skill at teaching or staff skill at supporting students in the STEM disciplines, equipment that could be incorporated into a program, mentoring or tutoring programs that could assist students in STEM related programs, activities that promote the STEM disciplines to potential or current students, field trips.  The possibilities are endless.
