The Monticello College Foundation operates on a fiscal year from July 1 to June 30. All grants requests will be considered for the upcoming fiscal year. Example: Requests received by August 31, 2018 or February 28, 2019 will be considered for the summer of 2019 or the 2019-2020 academic year.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Professional educational associations, agencies servicing women's education, and all accredited degree-granting two and four-year colleges and universities are eligible to apply for grants providing the entity:
- Is a qualified as tax-exempt under Section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 or corresponding provisions of any subsequent Federal tax law;
- Does not fall within the definition of a private foundation;
- Was organized and operates within the 50 states or the District of Columbia. Grants are made to the applying institution or organization; individuals are not eligible to apply.

Although the Foundation intends to remain flexible, projects that the Trustees are not considering for funding are:
- Direct grants to individuals;
- Grants for capital purposes, bricks and mortar, current operating expenses, endowed chairs and exchange students;
- Support for foreign schools or foreign-based American schools;
- Support for Social Service Agencies.

Pre-Application Information:

Proposals are received on a continuing basis. However, to allow for preliminary screening and Grants Committee review, proposals should be received by August 31 for consideration at the Fall Board meeting and by February 28 for consideration at the Spring Board meeting.

Applicants whose proposals cannot be considered for grants will be notified as soon as possible. Applicants whose projects are selected for further consideration may be asked to submit more details. All applicants will be notified of Board decisions within 30 days of the board meeting.

Unfortunately, limited funds make it impossible to support every request, and many proposals which have merit and which fall within the above guidelines must be declined.
