The Grants Office works with faculty and staff in procuring public grants. The staff researches funding opportunities for departments, individual faculty, and the college. The office has the necessary registration requirements (SAM registration, etc.) to submit government grant applications. We work with faculty and staff to prepare grant applications and administer grants.

Grant Liaisons representing every department are apprised of grant opportunities, relevant seminars, and workshops. They disseminate this information to the appropriate individuals in their department.

The Grants Office is a valuable resource for faculty who need guidance regarding individual or departmental grant research. An essential resource is SPIN, Sponsored Information Network, an online database of funding opportunities that provides current information on government and private sources with details on fellowships, research, curriculum development, travel, sabbatical and publication support.

The college also subscribes to SPIN SMARTS. Users supply the areas of funding they are interested in by setting up a 'profile' and the SPIN database automatically emails them with matching funding sources.

Please contact us to discuss your interests, research, project ideas, and funding needs.
