Services We Offer

The Grant Center is responsible for the identification and procurement of federal, state, and other external funding to supplement existing academic resources and to enhance program development and research at the University. Faculty and departments will be notified of appropriate, potential funding sources through campus mailings, newsletters, phone calls, and/or email.

Faculty are encouraged to visit the Grant Center to discuss an idea needing funding or information on funding sources. The Grant Center should be notified and made aware of possible ideas for funding. In general, all information requests to funding sources should go through the Center. Grant writing is a team effort. The Grant Center will assist at every step, but in most cases should not be considered the sole proposal writer.


The Grant Center has extensive resources on grantsmanship from directories to newsletters to websites. Please refer to a complete list of resources available in the Grant Center or via the Grant Center Presentations page
