Grants and Funding  

Center staff and associates will help faculty identify and pursue supportive grant funding from external granting agencies. We will assist in the writing of grant proposals and we will provide pertinent research that supports grant proposals. Our goal is to ensure that the College and its faculty are positioned to submit grant proposals to the federal government and other sponsoring agencies.
