Funding for Faculty Collaborations with Students
Center for Creative Inquiry (CCI) Grants
This internal grant program is designed to provide financial support for original research and other creative projects conducted by currently enrolled students and matriculated students who are mentored by a faculty member. Examples include costs associated with field experiences, conference travel, and more substantial semester-long projects. Grant proposals must be prepared and submitted by the student and approved by the participating faculty sponsor. There is no limit on the amount of requests or restrictions on how funds can be used, although all purchasing policies of the college must be followed. Awards will be made six times during each academic year and reviewed by a committee of faculty representatives from each school, with application deadlines announced on the website of the Center for Creative Inquiry.

Pepsico Partnership Grant
The goal of the Pepsico Partnership Grant program is to support and promote worthwhile campus projects with unrestricted dollars given by the Pepsi Corporation to Keene State College. These projects should improve the college academically or culturally, enhance its reputation, and improve the quality of life of its students.
Calls for Pepsico Partnership Grants are announced twice per year on the first day of each semester. The application period is about two weeks. The Invitation is sent via an Events email, posted to MyKSC Announcements and posted in a Pepsico Partnership Grant Folder in Public Folders.
Eligible applications will be accepted from student groups and organizations, faculty, staff, and departments and administrative offices at Keene State College. The maximum amount awarded is $2,000. Most often applications are awarded less. Funding for a speaker’s honoraria is limited to no more than $1,000. For more information, contact Barbara Preston.
