Rock Valley College

Student Engagement Grant


The purpose of the grant program is to provide a structured approach to assisting RVC departments with financial support for events, programs, and initiatives that enhance student engagement and enrich student life at RVC.

Beginning spring 2015, $5000 will be available to RVC departments across campus and will continue each academic year. The maximum dollar amount a department can apply for is $1000 and no more than two (2) awards per department will be granted.


Please submit all requests no later than three (3) weeks in advance. Grant money will awarded on a rolling basis, once the $5,000 is depleted there will be no more funds available for the remainder of the academic year.

Review and Awards Process

Awards are made on a first come/first serve basis and will be determined by the Dean of Students office.
