External Funding

The Office of Foundation Relations supports faculty in seeking external grants and fellowships. Senior Director of Foundation Relations, Larkin Tom, and Associate Director of Grants, Niki Bertrand, can support your efforts to secure funding for research and creative work.

The Office of Teaching, Learning, and Scholarship also works closely with Foundation Relations to support the grants program of the Associated Colleges of the South.
