External Funding Resources

To assist faculty and professional staff in identifying potential funding sources, the Office of Sponsored Programs subscribes to a membership with the AASCU Grants Resource Center (GRC).

The Grants Resource Center serves as a liaison to federal funding agencies, provides monthly electronic announcements of forthcoming deadlines and grant opportunities, and provides personal assistance in identifying funding sources or obtaining information from federal agencies. Faculty and staff have access to GRC’s website, which contains electronic versions of GRC Deadlines and GRC Reports, the GRC Bulletin, Federal Register announcements, federal agency and private foundation links, and a searchable grant database (GrantSearch).

The OSP staff will assist faculty in the use of the GrantSearch database or will perform funding searches upon request.
