Rubin Community Fellows Program Grant Submission Deadline – March 15
Troy, NY - The Louis & Hortense Rubin Community Fellows Program is now accepting preliminary concept grant applications for funding to support non-profit organizations and government agencies in Rensselaer County by partnering with local educational institutions.
The fund is a cooperative venture of The Sage Colleges, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Hudson Valley Community College, Emma Willard School, and participating agencies of Rensselaer County. The program supports fellowships for faculty of these institutions to work with agencies in Rensselaer County. The Rubin Community Fellows Program seeks to create collaboration partnerships, leading to creative solutions to economic, organizational, social and managerial problems challenging our community.
Last year, $39,000 in funding was awarded to four community projects that are making a difference on issues as diverse as childhood obesity, search and rescue, inner city school education, and independent media as an outlet for youth in troubled neighborhoods.
To submit an application for consideration, contact Kevin Stoner at (518) 244-3190 or firstname.lastname@example.org or visit sage.edu/rubin.
