Grant Development

UCC Grant DevelopmentUmpqua Community College has a goal of increasing grant funding to support endeavors targeted to the college’s mission and strategic plan, such as:

  • Infrastructure
  • Professional development
  • Creative activities
  • Instructional programs
  • Public service projects

The Grant Development Office supports faculty and staff members throughout the grant writing and grant management processes.

The Grant Development Office provides training and pre-award assistance to identify funding sources, develop program designs, write grant proposals, secure institutional approvals, and make grant applications. The Grant Development Office also provides post-award grant management support.

The Grant Proposal Process

All applications for external funding must be reviewed and approved by the executive council prior to submission. The process for submission includes:

  1. Consultation with Department Chair, Dean or VP
  2. Pre-application Planning with Director of Grants
  3. Draft Proposal with the Grant Development Office

This process is necessary to ensure that UCC submits high quality, financially sound proposals that reflect the mission, plans, and priorities of the college. Please consult with your department chair, dean, or vice president about your project before beginning the grant writing process.
