Our staff assists faculty members, students and other personnel who are seeking external funding for projects in research, instruction, or community service. We primarily assist with obtaining federal and state grants, contracts and cooperative agreements as well as corporate contracts. We occasionally also help faculty seek and obtain various forms of nonfederal funding.


Identification of Funding Sources: The OGC helps faculty members in finding the agencies that are likely to be interested in their particular project. We maintain a database of faculty interests and use it to notify faculty members of forthcoming opportunities in their area(s) of interest. We coordinate closely with the University Advancement Office, which typically handles the solicitation of private gifts.

Proposal Preparation: Our staff assists with completing required forms and reviews the proposal package to ensure that it meets agency requirements. We route the proposal on campus to appropriate offices for further approval review and signatures. (Please allow several working days for proposal review and approval for non-electronic submissions, and at least ten days for e-proposals submissions.) Our office also duplicates, packages, and mails the proposal packet.

Budget Development: We assist faculty in developing realistic budgets for their projects. In addition, we review the proposed budget for compliance with University and agency requirements and assist in negotiating budget revisions.

Proposal Critique: With sufficient lead time, we provide critiques of concept papers and draft proposals prior to submission. Such assists enables proposers to present their ideas clearly and in accordance with sponsor guidelines.

Agency Compliance: We assist faculty in meeting sponsor requirements both during proposal preparation and after a grant is awarded. We can provide information on the requirements for human subjects, animal subjects, patents, conflict of interest, and other issues. Our office provides the staff support to compliance committees.

Intramural Funding: Our office coordinates various small grants funded by the campus or by the CSU, as does the Faculty Development Center. Though modest in scope, these funds for research, travel and instruction often provide seed money which can assist in seeking acquiring external funding.

Other Services: The OGC is eager to work with faculty members and others who use our service to facilitate support of their research, scholarly, and creative activities. Please visit or call us if you have any questions about obtaining the gamut of external available funds.
