Innovation Grants

Innovation grants are designed to fund projects that benefit JCC students, programs, curricula, classrooms, or the College in general. Collaboration among personnel and departments is strongly encouraged. Innovation grants of up to $2,500 are available for projects on a one-time-only basis, based on availability of funding and assessed score of the project. Projects may be submitted by an individual staff or faculty member or by small groups.
