The College of Western Idaho (CWI) Foundation is accepting applications for its 2014 Mini Grant Program, marking the fourth year the Foundation will help fund projects around the College. Applications will be accepted through Friday, Sept. 12.
Mini Grants are a great opportunity for faculty and staff to help fund projects that impact CWI students. Previous Mini Grant awards have helped fund field trips, new equipment, and more. In 2013, the CWI Anthropology Department was one of several groups benefitting from a mini grant, which helped in purchasing new skull casts.
“The CWI Foundation Mini Grant provided a tremendous opportunity for our department,” says Anthropology Faculty, Nikki Gorrell. “Students commented over the course of the semester how much they enjoyed learning and connecting to concepts with the skull casts. The ultimate benefit of purchasing the skull casts is that they form part of a permanent collection of educational materials for CWI Anthropology students.”
