The Hillsborough Community College (HCC) Martin Luther King (MLK) Project was awarded a mini grant that will be implemented during the 2013 - 2014 academic year. These activities will include volunteerism, partnerships and community support in the Tampa area, which reflects the principles and philosophy of MLK. The project will culminate during the MLK week (January 18th - 25th), including the MLK Day of Service on January 18, 2014.
A primary goal of this initiative is to partner HCC student groups with community organizations for service learning projects. This is an excellent opportunity for community organizations to work with student groups to fulfill MLK's Dream. In honor of his dream, student groups will have the opportunity of receiving a scholarship. A competitive scholarship will be awarded to high quality projects for as much as $5000.
