The Chancellor’s Innovation Fund (CIF) is a competitive fund open to faculty and staff at VCCS colleges to support innovative, targeted projects that closely align with the new VCCS Strategic Plan, “Complete 2021.” The single goal of this new plan is to triple the number of credentials awarded to VCCS students by 2021. All CIF grants need to be developed, piloted, and assessed by the end of the fiscal year. Proposals are due October 10, 2014. Final grantees will be announced after October 24. Go to CIF.
