For our participants who are in the Colorado Community College System, the Immersive and Game-based Learning Faculty Challenge Grant was announced on Friday.
On Thursday evening we recorded a session that gave an overview and then discussed the grant.
Eligibility, Amount and Duration of Grants:
Faculty and staff (full‐time or part‐time, credit or non‐credit) from any CCCS college are eligible to participate as a project leader or co‐leader. CCCS expects to award multiple grants in 2012‐13 in response to this RFP. Awards will be made between $10,000 and $100,000 each, depending on the scope and scale of the project. The duration of the Round 2 grants will be 18 months. The Round 2 grants will begin on or near January 1, 2013 and must be completed by June 30, 2014. CCCS awarded 15 grants in Round 1, and expects to award another 10‐15 grants in Round 2.
Project leaders who received funding in Round 1 may apply for additional funding in Round 2, but it must be presented as a new project with its own set of timelines and deliverables, which must be distinct from the Round 1 project.
