Tri-College University awards collaborative grants
Six collaborative grants have been awarded through the Tri-College University collaborative grant grogram. The grant program was initiated in 2007 and is designed to bring faculty, staff and students together for new progressive initiatives. Ten grants were awarded in 2008 and range from $500 to $1,000 each.
