The Antioch University Office of Grants and Foundation Relations is responsible for coordinating grant proposal activity for the entire University. Grants and Foundation Relations staff can provide the resources to help you with obtaining outside funding for your program or project.
Support for Grantseekers
The office’s primary efforts are focused on specific programs and projects identified by the chancellor and campus provosts. For all other programs and projects, the office can provide varying levels of support, based on:
- Whether the project aligns with university focus areas
- Whether the project is multi- or single-campus
- Amount requested from the funder
- Amount of the project’s entire budget
Grants and Foundation Relations can provide support to help you:
- Identify and contact funders
- Develop your proposal and budget
- Complete all necessary forms for the University and the funding agency
- Obtain internal approvals for your project and proposal
- Submit your proposal
Feel free to contact the Grants and Foundation Relations Office to talk about your project and how we can help locate funding for it.
