Guidelines for the
Medical Center Staff Advisory Council (MCSAC)
Application Deadline: June 17, 2009
The Medical Center Staff Advisory Council (MCSAC) is requesting applications for its next round of grant awards. These funds are intended to benefit staff, faculty, patients, and/or Vanderbilt affiliated community projects. Applicants are encouraged to submit proposals that benefit the VUMC community and will have a lasting impact or which may lead to future programs.
Applications will be evaluated based on the impact to the VUMC community, the need, and the likelihood of success. Applications will not be evaluated on the amount of monies requested, but on the detail in the application.
MCSAC grants are generally considered one-time grants and are not intended to support annual requests for a program or project. However, programs or projects that merit such consideration can be submitted and will be reviewed with the understanding that future funding is not guaranteed.
MCSAC grant awards may not be used for any of the following:
Routine departmental items
Renovation of physical facilities
Laboratory or office furniture
Dues, professional memberships or journal subscriptions
Personnel salary support
We will fund as many applications as possible; however, as funds are limited, we will not be accepting any applications for projects or programs over $1000. Completed applications should be sent electronically to Treasurer.MCSAC@vanderbilt.edu
MCSAC grant funds will be released August 1, 2009 and grant applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application by July 15, 2009.
Grant awardees will be requested present their project to the MCSAC. We also request that grant awardees provide a summary of the project or program outcome as well as how funds were spent at the conclusion of the project/program or by May 31, 2010, which ever comes first.
