Mellon grant exemplifies creative potential of Consortium of Colleges

Bradenton Herald, February 11, 2017

A consortium can do some things that no single institution can. A case in point is the recent $750,000 five-year award from New York’s storied Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for the project “New College: Connecting the Arts and Humanities on Florida’s Creative Coast.”

Although New College houses the grant, the project would not have attracted the interest of the Mellon Foundation, and would not be possible, without the Consortium of Colleges on the Creative Coast (Eckerd College, State College of Florida Manatee-Sarasota, University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee, New College of Florida, The Ringling/FSU, and Ringling College of Art and Design).
