Vocation Mini-Grants

Applying for A Vocation Mini-Grant

The Vocation Implementation Team invites students, faculty, and staff to apply for mini-grants up to $1,000 to support the design and development of programs, activities, and events both inside and beyond the classroom that offer students opportunities to explore, discern and act on their vocations. Funding for mini-grants is made possible through a NetVUE Vocation across the Academy Grant with support by the Council of Independent Colleges and Lilly Endowment Inc.

Proposals will be accepted until Friday, September 24, 2021 for Fall 2021/Spring 2022 vocation programs, events, or activities. For more information and to apply, please see the Vocation Mini Grants RFP

Institutional Learning Goals

The seven institutional learning goals are the hallmark of our undergraduate education. Students’ learning around each of these seven ILGs is pursued through different structures and activities, such as coursework in their majors, the Common Academic Program, co-curricular programming, and learning experiences outside the formal curriculum.
