Contact Us | Grants and Research

The grants and research team at Carroll University facilitates and offers oversight for each step of the grant-seeking process. We work with faculty and other researchers seeking 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 help individuals or groups develop funding ideas, identify funding sources and craft proposals. We 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 project staff, we utilize our resources and relationships to assist with the management of the project to ensure compliance with sponsor and university policy and guidelines.

For more information on seeking grants, policies, forms and more, visit the Grants and Research portal page.

Contact us for any questions or assistance with grant management or funding.
