Kent State University Foundation Grant Program Issues Request for Proposals

The Kent State University Foundation Grant Program will award up to $100,000 for the 2017-2018 Academic Year as part of its annual request for proposals. Funding will be available to departments, schools, colleges, institutes and centers universitywide.

No restrictions are placed 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 Board will review all applications and make recommendations to the full board of directors for consideration.

The Foundation Grant Program has supported many things in the past. Last year’s support included the purchase of a Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS), a joint effort between the School of Digital Sciences and the College of Applied Engineering, Sustainability and Technology; funding for the University College’s Expanding Horizons Project; and the purchase of a Simulator Manikin for the Kent State University at Salem Nursing Simulation Lab.

To request funds, simply complete the electronic submission form.

Prior to submission, all proposals must have the approval of the academic dean responsible for the program. Each recipient will be required to submit a report on the use of funds to the Kent State University Foundation Board.

Applications must be received by Dec. 22, 2016.

This latest manikin joined the SimMan and SimBaby manikins at the Kent State University at Salem Nursing Simulation Lab. Students are able to obtain hands-on practice of procedural and life-saving techniques using these state-of-the-art manikins.

The Kent State University Board of Trustees today established a comprehensive, national search to recruit and select the university’s 13th president.


The events of May 4, 1970, placed Kent State University in an international spotlight after a student protest against the Vietnam War and the presence of the Ohio National Guard ended in tragedy with four students losing their lives and nine others being wounded. From a perspective of nearly 50 years, Kent State remembers the tragedy and leads a contemporary discussion and understanding of how the community, nation and world can benefit from understanding the profound impact of the event.
