Grant Support Services

Foundation Relations

The Foundation Relations team helps to pair university faculty and staff grant-seekers with public and private foundations to grow support for university priorities. Our team can help to find funding opportunities that fit with your program, identify potential funders for your idea, and connect you with resources to strengthen your proposal narrative and budget to make your best case for funding support.

Divisions and Schools

Your department chair and the division/school dean should be consulted early on in the grant seeking process to ensure that the project is consistent with division priorities. The chair and dean will need to approve the project’s faculty and staff time commitments, divisional cost-sharing or matching requirements and the use of department facilities. Additionally, they would need to approve the overall cost of any equipment to be purchased, including shipping, set-up and maintenance.

Office of the Provost

The Provost’s Office ensures that the project activities are consistent with the mission of the university and confirms that adequate support and resources will be available in the event of an award.
