Campus Consortium Accepting Fourth Round of 2015 Grant Applications

Chicago, IL October 7th, 2015 -- Campus Consortium, an association of more than 2,000 higher education institutions devoted to helping members improve enrollment, retention, and IT services, today announced the opening of the fourth round of grants for 2015. Three additional grants will be offered to accredited higher educational institutions during this fourth round - the Vulnerability Assessment Grant, Cloud Hosting Grant, and Customer Relationship Management Grant. Colleges and universities interested in applying for either of these grants, or learning more about the full list of grant opportunities offered, should visit the Campus Consortium website.

"The Campus Consortium Grant Committee selected these three new additions to the Grant Program based on Member feedback we received over the past year and at our regional conferences. We're able to offer the Vulnerability Assessment & Cloud Hosting Grant through our partnership with OculusIT, and we're able to offer the Customer Relationship Management Grant in partnership with Salesforce," states Anjli Jain, Chairman of Campus Consortium. "We encourage both our Members and non-Member institutions to apply for these opportunities."

The Campus Consortium Grant Program & Committee were created by Anjli Jain in 2003. This program was a result of decreasing IT budgets for higher educational institutions across the nation, a trend that ran parallel to a demand for new technologies from students, faculty and staff. Through strategic partnerships with the top brands in the education industry, the Consortium built a base of Grants that would help alleviate the budget crisis. Over the past 12 years, millions of dollars have been granted to almost a hundred institutions. During this current round of grants, the Consortium is offering grant opportunities equaling $5,000,000.
