Grants, Sponsored Research, and Strategic Initiatives
The primary role of the Office of Grants, Sponsored Research and Strategic Initiatives is to support faculty and student research, scholarships and the university's strategic projects (e.g., campus-wide initiatives). The office assists faculty, students and staff in their efforts to achieve funding. We research and identify funding opportunities including government, private foundations and corporate entities. Our goal is to develop a university culture that encourages, supports and advances grant seeking and success and teacher-scholar excellence.
We can assist with:
- Researching and identifying funding opportunities developing and reviewing proposals interpreting guidelines contacting and establishing relationships with grant-making organizations
- Creating collaborative opportunities between university departments.
Whatever your research needs, we can help you find funding sources; we can run foundation and government searches any time if you are looking for a particular grant opportunity.
If you are starting to work on a proposal to an outside entity such as a foundation or government agency, please start by filling in the External Grant Form or contact the grants office to begin the process for you. Finally, call our office for any assistance you might require regarding your proposal.

The REU program supports active research participation by undergraduate students in any of the areas of research funded by the National Science Foundation. This solicitation features two mechanisms for support of student research:
- REU Sites may be based in a single discipline or academic department or may offer interdisciplinary or multi-department research opportunities with a coherent intellectual theme. Proposals with an international dimension are welcome.
- REU Supplements may be included as a component of proposals for new or renewal NSF grants or cooperative agreements or may be requested for ongoing NSF-funded research projects.
Undergraduate student participants in either REU Sites or REU Supplements must be U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, or permanent residents of the United States.
