Mini Grants


The FLC Foundation provides annual financial assistance in the form of a mini-grant program to help faculty, staff and student sanctioned clubs improve student success in innovative ways. Mini grants may be used to buy equipment and supplies, or help support research, coursework or other projects/activities directly related to the college’s educational mission. 

Funding for mini grants comes from donations to the Faculty and Staff Campaign. The mini-grants are intended to provide an opportunity for support of special projects that directly improve student success or teaching and learning effectiveness.


All Folsom Lake College faculty, staff and student sanctioned clubs (with advisor involvement) are eligible to apply for FLC Foundation mini-grant support during the open application period, typically during the month of March. In an effort to increase funding that supports the mini-grants program, preference will be given to those who are current donors to the Faculty and Staff Campaign, all other things being equal. Priority is given to projects or activities that have not been funded by the Foundation the previous year.

Areas of Interest

The Foundation will give priority to proposals that demonstrate direct support for students and/or the ability to support & enhance student success. Ideal proposals should relate directly to the Vision and Mission statements and/or the Institutional Learning Outcomes which include:

  • Critical thinking
  • Communication
  • Awareness

Award Amounts:*

The maximum funding level for a regular mini-grant approved proposal is $1,000. The number of awards and amount depends upon annual Foundation fundraising efforts. Mini-grant funds are not to be used for ongoing program support, instructional equipment, or for compensation to Los Rios District employees. Grants are not meant to supplant dollars already in a departmental budget. Applications should clearly demonstrate any/all additional resources that will be used to defer project costs. *Any and all purchases of equipment, supplies, etc. using mini-grant funds must adhere to Los Rios Community College District purchasing guidelines and standard operating procedures.

Application Process:

Proposals must include a completed FLC Mini-Grant Application Form which can be accessed via Google docs.
