Background

The UCM Foundation launched this grant program in 2013 to support targeted, student-centered activities resulting in significant outcomes that benefit the university's learning environment and students' academic experience. Grants start at $100 and range to an individual maximum of $5,000. Grants are funded on the fiscal year running July 1 through June 30.

Opportunity Grants must fund expenses related to a specific project. Examples of allowable expenses include research, service projects, supplies, equipment, and software. Types of expenses not covered include salaries, release time, conference fees, travel, assistantships, or food costs. Applicants are limited to one proposal per year.

Established in 1979, the foundation procures, maintains and administers philanthropic gifts that advance the university’s mission and help students attain their college goals. In keeping with that mission, the foundation established the Opportunity Grant program to support faculty and staff who have ideas but insufficient funding.
