MCC provides minigrant funding to support a variety of faculty and staff initiatives. There are two categories of MCC-supported minigrants.


MCC PD Logo Professional Development Minigrants

PD minigrants are intended to support work that develops or improves services/resources that will have a direct impact on students and which align with the college's strategic initiatives.

All PD minigrant proposals are reviewed by the Professional Development Advisory Board which determines which applications receive funding.

Priority consideration will be given to projects and activities with a clear connection to the college's strategic plan. (For example, innovative ways to teach with technology or the promotion of diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging).

PD minigrant funding is typically based on a calculation of a work-load activity ($40 per hour).

PD Minigrant proposals must follow the following criteria:

  • There must a deliverable at the completion of the minigrant, along with a plan to assess the impact of the work (including the number of students it could reach).
  • The proposal must provide a budget detailing the amount of funding requested and projected expenditures.
  • The minigrant project must be completed within the relevant fiscal year. (It is strongly recommended that project activity periods extend no longer than a single semester.)
  • All applications must be approved by the applicant’s department chair and/or the division Dean or Vice President prior to submittal.

Please note:
There is typically only $10,000 in total available for PD minigrant projects in a regular fiscal year. In order to ensure broad distribution of limited PD minigrant funds, no minigrant funding request can exceed $1000 per each participant in the minigrant project.

If you have any questions, please contact Peter Shea, Director of the Office of Professional Development at sheap@middlesex.mass.edu.
