NCHC Portz Grant Application

NCHC Portz Grants are intended to support honors program/college innovation. 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)

NOTE: September 15, 2014 is the final day to submit an NCHC Portz Grant application.
