Applicants are encouraged to put together project proposals that develop or utilize partnerships on their campuses and demonstrate internal and in-kind financial support. The deadline for proposals is January 31, 2014 . The grant recipient will be announced at the 2014 ACHA Annual Meeting scheduled for May 27-31 in San Antonio, Texas.
