Faculty and staff can find support for grant opportunities with government agencies, foundations, and corporations support the mission of the Institute.
Many organizations support the Institute through funding for research, educational programs, scholarships, and capital projects. Faculty and staff can contact Meghan Rasmussen, the Institute’s director of Foundation Relations and Institutional Grants, to discuss a proposal or grant opportunity.
The Institute has information, documents, and tools to assist faculty and staff with all phases of a grant from proposal writing through final reporting. Grants staff can help you define an opportunity, develop the proposal and budget, communicate with the funder, complete the submission, and set up the award. Most grant-making organizations require that the Institute submit grant applications on behalf of our faculty and staff. Others do not explicitly require this but request information about institutional budgets and resources that require internal approvals. To facilitate and expedite this process, the Institute has implemented InfoEd for proposal routing and tracking.
Your proposal should be reviewed and endorsed before being submitted. This applies to all proposals regardless of the type of funder and size of the budget (or amount of indirect), and includes grants awarded directly to faculty members.
- All faculty and staff have access to the SPIN database to search grant opportunities.
- Sign up for INFO emails from the grants office.
- Most internal policies that impact grant proposals and awards are administered through the Middlebury Office of Grants and Sponsored Programs
- Contact Meghan Rasmussen for additional resources
