Call for NCHC Portz Grant Applications

The NCHC Portz Committee solicits applications from NCHC institutional and professional members for small grants (up to $500.00) and for large grants (normally up to $1,500.00) with twice-yearly deadlines of March 15 and September 15. NCHC Portz Grants are intended to support Honors program/college innovation. NCHC Portz Grant Application Form and supporting narrative are required for a grant application.  NCHC Portz Grants are made to Honors programs/colleges (not to individuals) to help them engage in program innovation rather than to fund ongoing operations or meet ordinary expenses. Applications that demonstrate clearly the way in which the innovation will be of benefit beyond the confines of the institution’s own Honors program/college normally are favored as are applications that demonstrate commitment of the institution's own funds (not fractions of released time for faculty or administrators, computer usage, and the like).The narrative statement should address the way in which a NCHC Portz Grant will help your Honors program/college in terms of one or more of the Basic Characteristics of a Fully-Developed Honors Program or Basic Characteristics of a Fully-Developed Honors College. NCHC Portz Grant may not be used for food, drinks, on-campus space rental, or student travel to conferences.
