In the past, foundation funds have been used to renovate
classroom space.

The Kent State University Foundation Grant Program will award up to $100,000 this year as part of its annual request for proposals. Funding will be available to departments, schools, colleges, institutes and centers universitywide.

There are no restrictions on the awards, which will be made to projects that have an impact on the quality of education offered to students at Kent State. Requests may be made up to the full $100,000. A committee of the foundation will review all applications and make recommendations to the full board of directors for consideration.

Previous grants as part of this program have included support for the All-Steinway School initiative, the renovation of an organic chemistry laboratory, the purchase of equipment for various departments, for the STATE student research project, for renovations to the art classrooms and equipment for architecture.
