Genesis Grant

Genesis is a grant program funded in part by the Margin of Excellence endowment and is open to all Isothermal Community College employees. Genesis funds innovation and awards supporting costs. As the name implies, Genesis is intended to stimulate the birth of new ideas, concepts and activities that will enrich our efforts to maximize the effectiveness of our service to students and the quality of our academic programs. Genesis grants give us a new opportunity to be both creative and innovative by providing the means to pursue excellence.
