Member Engagement Grants

2017-18 UPDATE:  The Member Engagement Grant process and timeline are being updated.  It is anticipated that this program will now follow a July 1 – June 30 timeline to mirror our organizational fiscal year.  Check back here for updates later this spring, or keep an eye out for MiCC’s Newsletter!
In 2016 MiCC combined two different funding processes under one umbrella, re-branding our campus grants as Member Engagement Grants.  Through an RFP process, ten projects were selected for funding this year.  Look for information late this calendar year regarding our next application timeline.  In the meantime, join us in congratulating the 2016-17 grantees!
