Recent Grant Activities
Here is just a sampling of some of Landmark College’s recent grant-funded projects.
Access to Innovative Education
In December 2013, Landmark received a $500,000 award from the Johnson Scholarship Foundation to establish the Access to Innovative Education fund. This award will allow Landmark to provide full scholarships to students with high financial need. As a matching grant, Landmark will be actively seeking other funders with similar interests to support this new fund.
Linking Civic Engagement and Student Wellbeing
A recent award through the Association of American Colleges and Universities, Bringing Theory to Practice has allowed Landmark to embark upon a seminar series to investigate how best to support civic engagement among our students. Faculty and staff came together in January 2014 for the first seminar event.
