Welcome to Corporate, Foundation, and Sponsored Research Support (CFSR)!

As part of the University’s Office of Development, CFSR connects the college and its faculty with foundations, corporations, and government agencies whose interests align with the university’s mission, institutional priorities and programs.

Among other things, our office is responsible for:

  • Researching and identifying funding opportunities
  • Assisting with proposal preparation and development
  • Administering grants
  • Educating faculty about grants, grantseeking, and philanthropic trends
  • Cultivating local community relationships through the Corporate Partnership Program
