The Grants Office

Welcome to the Grants Office

The Grants Office is your campus resource for developing grant applications to external funding sources, including both public agencies (federal, state and local government) and private sources (foundations and corporate giving programs).

If you have an idea for a grant project, the Grants Office has created an Initial Grant Proposal Form to help you outline what you plan to do and how much it will cost.  Next, use our Pre-Proposal Checklist to evaluate whether your idea is a good candidate for grant funding.  If you have identified a funding source or sources, compare our Grant Checklist to each potential source.  If you do not have a source in mind, use the links in Funding Sources to search for a suitable grant.  If you cannot identify a funding source, the Grants Office can recommend appropriate choices or help you search.

When you are ready to proceed, contact the Grants Office at least thirty (30) days prior to the application deadline.  All external grant applications are reviewed and submitted by the Grants Office, and the Grants Office reviews all potential applications to private sources with the PCC Foundation before developing a proposal.
