Please gather and send the following items to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Learning Center Innovation Grant Submission” by 11:59 p.m. on November 15, 2021, to be considered for this award:

2. Include a high-resolution photo(s) of the center. Include high-resolution photos of center staff. Include a high-resolution logo.
3. Include a link to a downloadable 5-minute video showing the center with staff members talking about the center, your goals, and how the utilization of Accudemia or AccuCampus will help achieve these goals.
Q: What is the application deadline:
A: Nov 15, 2021
Q: How will you choose the grant recipients?
A: After Nov 15, a committee will study each submission and score it using a scoring rubric. The grants will be awarded to the centers with the highest scores.
Q: Can you share the scoring rubric?
A: Yes. You can download a PDF copy of the rubric by clicking here.
Q: Will you publish the submissions?
A: Yes if the submission is of good quality for publication, we will publish it on our website. This includes the grant recipients and other submissions as well. We require that all submissions include a signed media release form to give us permission to publish the submission.
Q: How long does the submission have to be?
A: You need to have enough material to make the submission clear. The length of the submission is not as important as the quality of submission.
Q: Which conference does the grant recipient present it?
A: This is totally optional, but as an additional bonus, the grant recipients will get the opportunity to present their submission at a future conference. This can be about any conference for academic center staff where the presentation will be of interest (e.g. CRLA, NCLCA, ACTP, ACTLA, etc.). If your proposal to present at the conference is accepted, Engineerica will pay for your registration and travel expenses to attend and present at the conference. This is a great opportunity to spread the word about your center and the great work you do there!
Q: When will you announce the results?
A: The results will be announced after the scoring of all applications is completed, so the exact date depends on the number of submissions. Expect the results to be announced mid-December 2021 to mid-January 2022.
Q: What if I have more questions?
A: Please email Rachel Cook at email@example.com with any questions.
