The Office of Corporate, Foundation, and Sponsored Research Support (the grants team) works with faculty and staff to develop successful funding relationships with foundations, corporations, and government agencies. We offer comprehensive services from project idea to close out for projects funded by external organizations. The team also facilitates business sponsorships. We look forward to hearing your ideas.
