The Grant/Prospect Research Office is a service to the campus and functions through the Office of Advancement. It is the policy of Carson-Newman University not to accept any type of federal funding for program operations or facilities. Securing external support from foundations and corporations provides additional resources, which benefit the faculty, staff and students. Faculty are invited to actively participate in the development of proposals. If you intend to contact a private foundation or business, in case there are potentially conflicting proposals or requests being submitted by the University.
All grant contact needs to be coordinated through this office to achieve the following:
- Maintain a master file and calendar of all grant proposal exploration and application
- Observe foundation timelines for proposal submission and resubmission
- Review foundation guidelines to assure the program requesting support has the greatest likelihood of being funded
- Review and proof read proposal for format and clarity Thank you for your support and assistance
