Pre-Award Support

Feed your passion! External grants support our College mission by providing resources you as a faculty member need to pursue the interesting questions and problems that led you to a life in the academe–all while introducing your students to the power of scholarly work in pursuit of a better society.

The Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) has long encouraged providing more faculty-mentored research opportunities to students because of the deep learning that occurs in that context. Research and creative endeavors are powerful components of a liberal arts education.
