The Dominion Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Dominion Resources, announced (March 3, 2011) that it is accepting applications for the Dominion Higher Educational Partnership, a competitive grant program for colleges, community colleges and post-secondary training schools. The deadline for applications is May 1, 2011 and must be submitted online.
Schools in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia may apply, as well as targeted localities in Maryland, New England and North Carolina. A total of $1 million is expected to be awarded, with an average grant of about $30,000. Grants up to $50,000 will be awarded for exceptional programs, based in part on having immediate benefits for students, the campus and the community.
The Foundation will notify applicants in early August.
