Institutional Grants


Office of Outreach and Grants Management

The Commission administers a number of educational grant programs funded by State general funds, special funds, and federal funds. The Office of Outreach and Grants Management issues requests for applications and/or proposals (RFAs/RFPs) for grant projects and develops programs to implement the plan for postsecondary education in Maryland. The programs are designed to address the State’s economic and workforce development needs, campus reform initiatives, student preparation for postsecondary education, faculty and student diversity goals, and teacher professional development objectives.

MHEC provides a method that allows visitors to this web site to subscribe to an RSS, "Really Simple Syndication", Feed to obtain automatic notification when Grant content is updated.

Click on the above icon or link to view and subscribe to the Maryland Higher Education Commission Grants RSS Feed. RSS (an abbreviation for Really Simple Syndication) is a family of Web feed formats used to publish frequently updated works - such as blog entries, news headlines, audio, and video - in a standardized format. An RSS document (which is called a "feed", "web feed", or "channel") includes full or summarized text, plus metadata such as publishing dates and authorship. Web feeds benefit publishers by letting them syndicate content automatically. They benefit readers who want to subscribe to timely updates from favored websites or to aggregate feeds from many sites into one place. RSS feeds can be read using software called an "RSS reader", "feed reader", or "aggregator", which can be web-based, desktop-based, or mobile-device-based. A standardized XML file format allows the information to be published once and viewed by many different programs. The user subscribes to a feed by entering the feed's URI (often referred to informally as a "URL" (uniform resource locater), although technically the two terms are not exactly synonymous) into the reader or by clicking an RSS icon in a browser that initiates the subscription process. The RSS reader checks the user's subscribed feeds regularly for new work, downloads any updates that it finds, and provides a user interface to monitor and read the feeds.
