Projects can be proposed by individual faculty or faculty teams, and there will be up to 10 awards per grant cycle with a maximum award amount of $10,000. This is intended to support faculty professional growth by funding projects to improve student learning. More information can be found here: https://www.mdc.edu/innovate/
