Grants Office & Search Tools for Grants

The Grants Office can assist in finding prospective funding opportunities for your project, in helping connect you with potential campus and community partners, with editing the grant proposal and gathering all necessary documents for submission, and in providing guidance in developing grant budgets. We can also guide you through the grant application and submission process and, upon award, liaison with our fiscal office to help you obtain access to your grant funds. Our sources are primarily public (federal, state, or municipal).
