The purpose of the C-CUE Microgrants Program is to support staff and faculty of member

institutions for technology related professional development opportunities. Awards of up to

$1,000 are made on a rolling basis. Total awards will be capped at $3,000 per fiscal year.


ELIGIBILITY

The C-CUE Microgrants Program awards grants to individuals actively employed by member

institutions in good standing.

Individuals may request funds for training or for attendance at a conference or other

professional activity that will advance the individual’s career goals, or that would provide

valuable information for the individual’s institution.

Individuals will be required to prepare and present a presentation related to the training or

conference event at the C-CUE meeting workshop following their grant funded event.
