Sponsored Programs and Research Administration

If you need funding to support special academic programs, professional development, curriculum development, research, community projects, and outside collaborations, we encourage you to contact us early on in the process so that we may provide the maximum support throughout the proposal development process.

Some of the ways in which we can support community members include:
  • Search for potential funding sources and obtain application information and materials
  • With specific content provided, writing of draft and final proposals with principal investigator (PI) or writing team
  • Advice and assistance regarding sufficient timing and planning to obtain final approval signatures and documents 
  • Guidance, information and contacts for budget development, campus collaboration, facilities, etc., for project planning
  • Access to the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) Grants Resource Center (GRC) faculty alert system which enables researchers and administrators to set up alerts on-line to get monthly notification of appropriate federal and private funding opportunities. (Contact Elaine Milo at extension 8031 to obtain login).
