Congressman Jeff Van Drew and Senator Bob Andrzejczak visited our Cape May Campus to speak with students Matthew, Torey and Zhanna about the NJ Community College Opportunity Grant. This Free Community College initiative made it possible for many students to attend Atlantic Cape who thought higher education was out of their reach. Thank you to Congressman Van Drew and Senator Andrzejczak for your time and support!
This event coincided with National Community College Month, which is a time to recognize and spread awareness of the hard work and achievement happening every day on community college campuses. According to the American Association of Community Colleges, there are more than 12 million students enrolled at community colleges across the country, institutions that serve an incredibly diverse student population and put millions of people’s educational and career goals within reach.
On March 28, Stedman Graham joined 25 other workshop attendees for a training on how to use the Funding Information Network. Mr. Graham attended as representative of the nonprofit called Concerned Citizens of Whitesboro. The FIN is an online directory of grant making organizations, institutions and agencies in the United States and around the world. The FIN is available for free to the Atlantic Cape community and the general public. It is located at the Nonprofit Resource Center in the Cape May County Campus library. Periodic workshops are conducted by Resource Development and library staff and individual FIN training sessions can be arranged by appointment.
Janet Hauge, Director of Academic Support Services, oversees activities at all three campus libraries and was instrumental in coordinating the delivery of the FIN workshops. The training was conducted by a Senior Librarian, Susan Shiroma, from the Foundation Center in New York City. She spent two days in Cape May training nonprofit organizations as well as faculty and staff on how to research grant opportunities using the FIN. She also presented workshops on the elements of basic grant proposal writing.
Additionally, Mike Rennick, Senior Manager of Grants, presented the Grants 101 workshop in March 13 to interested Atlantic Cape faculty and staff. Mike’s presentation covers the how the Resource Development Department can assist in the research, development and writing of grant proposals at the college. Mike is available to offer this presentation to other faculty and staff members at department meetings. Please contact Mike directly if you are interested in learning more about the grant development process or researching potential grant opportunities at Atlantic Cape.
