The Centralia College Foundation is allocating $10,000 to help students in purchasing supplies for 2016 Capstone projects and presentations.
A Capstone project is a culminating project or senior exhibit.
Centralia College is the only community college in the state that has provided funding for students to participate in research-related projects.
Students may apply for funding (maximum of $500 per individual or $2,500 for a group) through a faculty member via an online application packet.
Faculty are encouraged to distribute the application packet to students.
As part of the application, students will need to identify a faculty member, create a budget, describe the project, and describe the benefit to the college and community, as well as to the individual or team.
Students are encouraged to stretch their funding by identifying matching funds.
The first round of applications will be accepted at the foundation office through Dec. 4, with funding awarded by Jan. 11. Funds are only available for reimbursement with receipts.
The rubric used in the awards process is part of the online application packet as well as a calendar indicating the timeline for the projects.
Capstone Presentation Day will be June 10. The community, campus, faculty and students are invited to attend.
For more information, contact a Centralia College faculty member or Julie Johnson in the foundation office at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 360-736-9391, ext. 516.
