Providing grant resources and identifying funding opportunities

Grants + Grant Funding Administrator

When it comes to finding outside funding for your research projects, the Office of Research and Grants is here to help you. We are here to provide resources for locating funding opportunities as well as to provide information to help you write the best proposal for both research and non-research based grants.

Recent non-research grants have included:

  • The Kansas Health Foundation for work to create a tobacco-free campus ($25,000);
  • Interfaith Youth Core campus innovation grant to create an interfaith space on campus ($4,000);
  • U.S. Department of Education for a new McNair Scholars program ($1,161,325); and
  • Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program to incorporate science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education into the Master of Library Science curriculum ($496,277).

The Office of Research and Grants also serves as the administrator for all grant funding received by Emporia State University.
