Capstone – Phase II Grant Winners
Claremont Lincoln University is committed to positive social change through its capstone program. As another example of this commitment, Claremont Lincoln University hosted its first Phase II Grant committee meeting on Tuesday, February 27. The purpose of the grant committee was to review applications for the Center for Action Research’s first ever Phase II grant award. CLU alumni who had completed their capstones were invited to apply for a grant that would help fund a second iteration of their project, with the goal of expanding the project’s impact. The grants were made possible by UPS, who generously provided $10,000 for the purposes of supporting student capstone projects. The Phase II committee distributed the money in the form of two $5,000 micro-grants.
The CommitteeOur committee was comprised of both long-time friends of CLU and new contributors who brought a wealth of wisdom to the committee meeting.
