Funding Opportunities

Resources for Faculty

Grant Resources

The Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations offers a range of materials, services and grant resources from foundations, corporations and government agencies to assist faculty in obtaining funding for research projects. The college needs to coordinate its funding efforts for both institutional and individual projects, so we request that faculty inform us about any plans they may have to contact an outside funding agency.

The links below list opportunities by discipline.
