HCHE Faculty Grant Program (FGP)

General Information 

The Hartford Consortium for Higher Education (HCHE) provides opportunities for collaboration among faculty, students, staff and administrators at its member institutions. The Faculty Grant Program (FGP) is one form of collaboration. HCHE encourages participants to develop joint projects involving two or more member institutions that benefit all participating members and the wider community in the Hartford area.

Examples of past projects include new courses, health and wellness initiatives, seminars on topics of regional concern, exhibits and performances, as well as service learning opportunities for students. We encourage applicants to reach beyond their campus borders to collaborate with community organizations or local government.

Individuals considering applications are encouraged to speak with grant writing staff at their institutions before beginning the process. They may be able to identify other funding sources to support larger scale project ideas.
