Grants

Grants are a major source of funding for the Ivy Tech Foundation and Ivy Tech Community College. Below please find information on what grants are, how to give a grant, and the internal grant-seeking process at Ivy Tech.

What is a grant?

Grants are funds given to the Foundation or College for specific, designated purposes, and usually include a contract for services, a specific time frame for completion, and reporting of results back to the funder. Some of these grants are given to the College (typically from local, state, and federal government agencies), while others are directed to the Foundation as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization (typically from education funders, nationwide foundations, community foundations, private and family foundations, and corporate foundations).
