Office of Institutional Grants
(Formerly the Office of Foundation and Corporate Programs)
The Office of Institutional Grants works in collaboration with Bryn Mawr faculty and administration to secure external funding from foundations and government agencies for institutional priorities and academic programs. Institutional grants to the College have supported student scholarships, faculty development programs, curriculum development, capital improvements, and many other initiatives that enrich the campus community.
Services provided by the Office of Institutional Grants include identification of potential funding sources, guidance in the development of project proposals, and post-award stewardship of grant funds. The Office also assists and advises faculty in the preparation of applications to private foundations for fellowships and research funding and works with the Office of Sponsored Research to coordinate the submission of such applications and ensure compliance with post-award reporting requirements.
Prior to contacting a foundation or submitting a proposal, faculty members should consult with the Office of Institutional Grants. Faculty members also are encouraged to meet with the Director of Institutional Grants if they have ideas for projects that align with institutional priorities so that the Office can be of assistance in advancing these projects and in securing external funding.
