Monroe Community College's Internal Grant Application process usually occurs in the fall. An article in the MCC Tribune announces the dates of the competition and the online application and review processes. Visit our Internal Funding page for more information on the process.
Read the Guidelines for internal grant funding.
The Funding Sources page lists commonly-used external funding sources. If you have a specific grant idea or have viewed a request for proposal (RFP) of an agency, the Grants office staff can help determine whether your project is suitable for the funding source.
Since grant proposals are submitted by the Grants office, work with the Grants Office early in the process to refine your proposal and to meet all funder requirements. Expert staff will assist you on all aspects of your grant application to increase funding potential.
Call (585) 685-6012 for a quick answer by phone, or to schedule an appointment to discuss your idea and answer your questions.
All project must be approved by the College prior to development and submission. The Grants office facilitates the approval process. An MCC Intent to Submit Form is required.
Grant project development may take one month, six months, one year, or even longer, depending on the scope of the project and the funding agency's requirements. Consider that you will be collecting data, establishing partnerships, identifying personnel, constructing budgets, and developing metrics during your project design. To create a competitive proposal, each element requires your focused time.
Constructing a budget requires precise planning. Contact the Grants office for assistance early in your project development.
A grant is a contract, not a gift. If awarded, the Grants office will schedule a kick-off meeting to discuss all aspects of the funder's requirements, project implementation, budget monitoring, and post-award management and reporting.
