The Office of Grants and Foundation Relations helps members of the Calvin College community secure external funding from foundations, corporations, governmental agencies, and individuals. Under the auspices of both the Provost's Office and the Development Office, the Office of Grants and Foundation Relations works to obtain funding for college-wide initiatives as well as for faculty research and departmental programs.
The Grants Office assists faculty members who are interested in applying for funding for a specific project. There are several directions this might take:
- Internal funding opportunities. (Check the Office of the Dean for Research and Scholarship for more information.)
- External funding sources:
Private funds: Corporate and Foundation Relations
Public funds: Grants Office
- Grant writing assistance: The grant-writing process can often seem daunting and complex. Involving the Grants Office in the early planning stages of grant seeking can make the process more manageable and, ultimately, less stressful.
