Mangan, Katherine
Chronicle of Higher Education, v55 n10 pB12 Oct 2008
A lot of students have benefited from part of the $27-million in federal and state grant money that Del Mar College has received since it opened a centralized office for grants and sponsored research in 2005. Del Mar, which has about 11,000 credit-seeking students, is one of a growing number of community colleges that make up for shrinking state appropriations by aggressively pursuing grants. The 63 grants it has received have also paid for programs in burgeoning fields like cybersecurity and geospatial technology. This article describes how Del Mar College tries bold strategies to get more grant money.
