The Office of Grant Development's role is to support you through the grant submission process. External sponsors include all federal, state, county, and local government agencies; foundations; nonprofit organizations; private corporations; and private groups and individuals that make grant awards to universities, contract with universities, or otherwise enter into agreements with universities to provide funds to support specific projects for the performance of a specific scope of work.
At any point in the conceptualization or preparation of research proposals, you can contact the Director of Grant Development, Lyla Kaplan, to answer your questions and/or assist you in all aspects of the pre-award period. This includes:
- Searching for funding opportunities
- Checking sponsor guidelines and eligibility
- Examining sponsor funding trends and priorities
- Program and budget development, including cost sharing
- Providing document templates and boilerplate language
- Providing grant writing resources
- Editing and proofreading the narrative and other documents
Additonal assistance is also available from your grant specialist in the Office of Grant Development (OGC). OGC is the only office on campus authorized to commit Villanova in application for sponsored funding.
Corporate and Foundation Relations should be consulted in the preparation of Federal grants which include collaboration with private industry or foundations.
