Resource for Excellence Grant Program

Any faculty, staff, administrator or other employee of College of DuPage is eligible to apply for a Resource for Excellence Grant, sponsored by the College of DuPage Foundation.

The College of DuPage Foundation recognizes that, given the resources to proceed, COD employees in all divisions have the capacity to contribute to the improvement of instruction, experience and support given to those served by the College.

Resource for Excellence Grants are available to support innovative ideas that will improve any aspect of operation at College of DuPage.  Funds are not intended for individual professional development, however, and all projects must align with institutional, divisional or departmental priorities and be approved by the appropriate Dean or other administrator.

To apply, follow the directions in the grant application. If you have any questions about the application process, please contact Barbara Abromitis at ext. 3020 or

The Resource for Excellence Grant Program will be operating on a cycle that matches the fiscal year, July 1 - June 30 of each year.

FY 2020 applications are due by 5 p.m. on Friday, February 1, 2019.
