The Bates Foundation has announced the mini-grant recipients for 2014-2015. A total of seven projects were funded totaling $10,000. The purpose of the mini grant awards is to fund innovative and unique projects or programs that enhance the mission and goals of Bates Technical College, but which may not normally be funded through the college’s annual operating budget.
