The Student Equity Subcommittee is happy to announce that applications for the 2023-2024 Student Equity Minigrant are now available! Please note that applications will no longer be submitted via the Canvas shell. Instead, the student equity minigrant application is now web based and will just require that your LBCC credentials to complete the application.
Various departments and areas of the college, as well as individual faculty, staff, and Student Clubs can now apply for a minigrant ranging from $100 – $5,000 to support a student equity project for their area, or for the campus at large. All student equity minigrants proposals should aim to close equity (obligation) gaps for one or more of our disproportionately impacted student groups along one or more of the metrics laid out in the LBCC Student Equity Plan. Additionally, this year we are particularly interested in proposals that seek to address student engagement, connection, belonging, and mattering with a focus on Black/African American & first-generation students.
