The Office of Grant Development supports these goals by providing assistance and leadership to those departments seeking to obtain federal, state and/or local grant funding to assist in the creation or expansion of student success programs.  

Institutional advancement through the internal innovation mini-grant program - created through the 2017 Innovation Award in Higher Education - supports innovative project ideas from the campus community which allows us to explore untested theories in education that increase student educational attainment.

In addition, our office contributes to the success of our students through funding for programs (such as STEP-UP, TRIO, Shasta CARES) and Innovation Mini-Grant Projects such as Online Horticulture Certificate with Distributed Labs –A Scalable Regional Collaboration, Transfer Posters and Transfer Week, Virtual Reality, and GIS APP and GEO App Phase II.
