External Grant Support
St. Thomas has two offices that support faculty seeking external grants. The Sponsored Programs Office helps faculty seek, submit, and manage grants to state and federal government funding agencies. The Corporate and Foundation Relations Office helps faculty seek, submit, and manage grants to local, corporate, and foundation granting agencies. For further information and contact information, see External Grants.
The Center for Faculty Development provides support to all St. Thomas faculty—full time and adjunct—on all aspects of writing and publishing scholarly work. This includes grant applications. We also collaborate with the Sponsored Programs Office and the Corporate and Foundation Relations Office to provide occasional workshops on grant-seeking and grant writing. For more information, see Writing Support.
In addition, St. Thomas currently has an institutional membership to the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity. Faculty are highly encouraged to activate a free membership
