Tuscaloosa Consortium for Higher Education Seeking Grant Proposals

  • April 10th, 2000

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — The Tuscaloosa Consortium for Higher Education (TCHE) is seeking proposals from faculty, staff and students at The University of Alabama, Stillman College and Shelton State Community College for projects to be funded through its small grants program.

TCHE, a partnership formed by UA, Stillman and Shelton State in 1997, awards grants three times each year for collaborative projects to be undertaken by faculty, staff and students at the three institutions. Grants support joint projects that promise to contribute to the economic, cultural and educational growth of the region and state.

Grant proposals must include participants from at least two of the participating institutions. Eligible projects may include curriculum development, research, public service and educational or cultural activities. The maximum grant awarded is $2,500. Grants of seed money to be used to seek additional funding are strongly encouraged as are proposals seeking partial support for projects that will also receive funds from other sources.

The deadline for proposals for grants to be awarded this spring is April 15. For more information, contact Dr. James P. “Ike” Adams in the UA Office of Academic Affairs at 205/348-4890.
