(CENTREVILLE) – Glen Oaks Community College has been chosen to participate in a national program.
School officials says Glen Oak has been selected to participate in a National Science Foundation program that will provide training and support to assist the college’s expertise in grant writing. Glen Oaks is one of 13 two-year colleges nationally chosen to participate in this program in which Project Vision’s staff and its teams work with local faculty and staff to create a comfort level in writing grants.
In addition, the program provides direction in generating innovative ideas that lead to award-worthy NSF proposals.
Michael Goldin, Vice President of Academics says this is great news for Glen Oaks. He says the college has recently stepped up its game on seeking funding from outside sources, and the Project Vision program will provide staff with expertise to help submit innovative proposals to the NSF to tap into their Advanced Technological Education program. The program focuses on helping community colleges partner with industry and economic development agencies to help prepare technicians for high-technology fields that drive the nation's economy.
These grants support activities such as creation of programs, professional development of instructors, collaboration with high school programs, and creation of instructional and career pathways in high-tech fields such as the agricultural equipment technology programs offered at Glen Oaks.
The program is designed to help two-year colleges that are small, diverse, and in rural areas.
