Internal Grants

Kellogg Legacy Endowment

The Kellogg Legacy Project Endowment is a multi-million dollar investment in the future of our students, our state, and our nation. This remarkable gift from one of the nation's leading foundations supporting education strengthens student success programs, improves support for faculty teaching and scholarly innovation, and expands relations with the community. Proceeds from the endowment are invested by the President in projects and activities that strengthen the university and advance its major goals, particularly the success of our disadvantaged or underprivileged students.

Funded by the Student Success Fee, there are two types of SPICE grants available: 

  • Classroom & Lab Equipment Grants:   Funds are available to significantly update classroom equipment and to modernize specialized equipment used in laboratories and classrooms.
