Welcome to Grants and Research at Carroll University
The Grants and Research team at Carroll University exists to facilitate and offer oversight for each step of the grant-seeking process for faculty and other researchers. Our mission is to serve those who seek external funding for projects that will benefit an individual faculty or staff member, a department or area on campus, the entire Carroll campus, or a campus-community partnership. We offer a wide range of services. On the pre-award side, we can help individuals or groups develop funding ideas, identify funding sources, and craft proposals. We can also assist those who have secured funding with negotiation, grant management, financial oversight, or problem solving on specific projects.

Working collaboratively with principal investigators (PIs), project directors (PDs) and/or project coordinators, we assist with successful submission of proposals and compliance throughout the life of the project. While the project is ultimately the responsibility of the PI/PD, we utilize our resources and relationships to assist PI's/PD’s with the management of their projects.
