The faculty and staff at Marietta College are encouraged to develop grant applications for research, to support the development of special projects, and to support other initiatives that strengthen the mission, strategic plan, and core values of the college. The Academic Grants Officer is available to provide assistance with the grant preparation process: researching sources, developing concepts, organizing and writing material, formulating budgets, reviewing proposal drafts, and obtaining required administrative approvals for all external funding requests. The Academic Grants Office also functions as the Office of Sponsored Programs.
After grants are received, the grants officer serves as a liaison to faculty and staff on grant administration, reports, and compliance with regulations concerning the appropriate expenditure of public or private funds.
This website has been designed to be a resource that you can use effectively at all stages of the grant cycle: to facilitate your search for grant sources, provide helpful information for grant writing, and clarify the college’s policies and procedures on grant submission and grant administration. Announcements about grant deadlines are updated monthly, with links to requests for proposals. Summaries of recent awards and of grants currently active at MC are also provided.
Please feel free to contact the grants office with questions or for assistance at any stage in the grant development or administrative process.
