The Office of Grants Development has created a Cybersecurity Committee to position the College for various grants that may become available in the next few years in this area. Some of the issues we might want to work on include: what are our capacities; what are our strengths and how could we build on these; who are our partners; what are our capabilities of offering courses to international audiences; and what is our vision in the Cybersecurity area? We would love to hear your input. What do you think? Please add a post.
Here is your chance to apply for funding to help put your great ideas into action! This next round of grants is for activities to take place during the spring 2014 semester. Contact Grants Development to get more information and to download an application.
The Office of Grants Development’s website has been completely redesigned. Please let us know how it looks to you and what types of additional information you would like to see on this blog or on the website.

It is that time again. The VCCS is accepting professional development applications from community college faculty in Virginia. Activities may include building knowledge and skills within your academic discipline; improving classroom teaching, learning, and assessment techniques; or enhancing administrative and leadership skills to fulfill the institutional mission of the college. The next deadline for this grant program, offered three times per year, is October 15 for activities taking place during the 2014 Spring Semester. Pending review by the Office of Grants Development, faculty may apply individually or collaboratively for time and expenses. Maxi- mum funding for time is eight credits @ $750 per credit. Faculty may also apply to VCCS for a workshop mini grant, a maximum of $1,500, to hold day conferences or workshops in conjunction with one other college. Details on both of these VCCS grant programs can be viewed at: http://old.vccs.edu/ FacultyStaff/ProfessionalDevelopment/GrantsProgram.aspx
The Monthly Grants Newsletters are produced on a monthly basis by the Office of Grants and Development. The main purpose of the newsletters is to provide basic information to faculty and staff about the grants process at Northern Virginia Community College (NVCC) and to share samples of the types of grant funding that is available.
