Foundation Special Project Awards
The Winona State University Foundation was chartered in 1963 for the purpose of receiving, managing, and applying funds exclusively for charitable, scientific, or educational activities at Winona State University.
Each year, the Winona State University Foundation grants approximately $75,000 to special project applications pursued by faculty or staff at the University. The object of the awards is to provide financial support for projects that bring innovation and acclaim to the University. The Special Projects Committee of the WSU Foundation Board of Trustees reviews the applications three times a year and selects the winning projects. The number and amount of award(s) shall be determined based on the annual funding available and periodically reviewed by the WSU Foundation Special Projects Committee. The recipients of the awards are announced at the Foundation's spring board meeting.

Special Projects Committee
The Special Project Committee is primarily responsible for special program activities of the Foundation. This includes developing proposal guidelines for projects intended to enhance WSU's academic mission, to improve the quality of its faculty or the level of instruction, and to enrich the learning experiences available to its students. The committee encourages, reviews and recommends funding for programs and projects at WSU for which there are no current funding sources available.
Dollars awarded via the Special Project Committee are initially received as unrestricted gifts. These unrestricted donations come from a variety of sources: alumni, corporations, matching gift companies, and other friends of WSU. The purpose of the program is broad and designed to serve the curricular, professional, and program development priorities of the institution.
