Are faculty required to work with the Corporate and Foundation Relations team?

In the case of limited submission opportunities, working in coordination with Foundation Relations and the Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) is required. For open funding opportunities, you are not required to work with Foundation Relations. However, partnering with our office can greatly increase your chances of funding success by helping you identify the best grant opportunities for your research, craft the strongest letters of inquiry and proposals, and coordinate efficiently with University Leadership, OVPR, and cross-departmental collaborators. We’re here to help!
