Where applicable, the grant recipient should be able to assure continuance of a successful project after the termination of the grant.

Proposals are received on a continuing basis. However, to allow for preliminary screening and Grants Committee review, proposals should be received by August 31 for consideration at the fall Board meeting and by February 28 for consideration at the spring Board meeting.
The Monticello College Foundation operates on a fiscal year from July 1 to June 30. All grants requests will be considered for the upcoming fiscal year. Example: Requests received by August 31, 2018 or February 28, 2019 will be considered for the summer of 2019 or the 2019-2020 academic year.
Applicants whose proposals cannot be considered for grants will be notified as soon as possible. Applicants whose projects are selected for further consideration may be asked to submit more details. All applicants will be notified of Board decisions within 30 days of the board meeting.
Unfortunately, limited funds make it impossible to support every request, and many proposals which have merit and which fall within the above guidelines must be declined.
