Pilot Ecolab Micro-Grant Program
Program to Return Fall 2023
The Ecolab Micro-Grant Program is an Innovation Office pilot initiative in its second year. It is intended to provide an even more convenient and efficient way to apply for and receive funds that support classroom learning. It is particularly suited to smaller projects or needs.
Teachers and faculty are encouraged to apply for a micro-grant at anytime using a simplified application with a three-question narrative. Grants will be awarded based on eligibility until funding is exhausted. In 2022, funds were fully committed within about a month.We expect to reopen to Ecolab Micro-Grant applications in the fall of 2023. There may be funds remaining from 2022-32 ETGP projects that we can re-disburse in the future. Any such funds are currently held up in accounting. We will resume issuing grants to pending applications if/when that becomes available to us.Thank you to everyone who applied, and who provided feedback on the process. If your grant is not funded, please consider checking out our application resources, or consider applying for a larger ETGP grant in the spring.
