Process and Resources

  1. Contact Corporate and Foundation Relations (CFR) Director once you have identified the foundation or corporation you want to approach.
    NOTE: Please provide a minimum of three weeks before proposal or submission is due.

  2. If there is not a conflict with a possible proposal or letter of intent, CFR Director will ask you to complete the CFR Grant Submission Checklist form, share a summary of the project and budget, and confirm Dean approval (and possibly Provost approval).

  3. Once received and approved by CFR, the timeline with dates will be sent to PI for review and signature.

  4. For funding requests at $10,000 and up, CFR Director can provide editing and guidance for the request. For all requests, please provide CFR Director copies in order to track the funds and to ensure follow up.
