Faculty Grant Support

Hampshire College faculty members have a strong record in applying for and winning research and programmatic grants. To start the grant seeking process, read the general guidelines below: 

The Five Step Faculty Grant-Seeking Process:

Step 1. Contact the Office of Foundation and Government Relations with your ideas for a research or teaching grant.

Step 2. If you do not have any in mind, we will help you identify potential funding sources. A valuable resource for grant-seeking faculty members is the Foundation Center's Philanthropy News Digest, which publishes RFP's and notices of awards weekly. You may also subscribe to have it emailed to you for free.

Step 3. We will support your efforts in developing a grant proposal and responding to grant applications by editing content, preparing budgets, and contacting funding sources when necessary.

Step 4. Once your proposal is complete, we will help you fill out Hampshire’s internal form that, once signed by the appropriate administrator, will grant approval for you to submit a grant application.

Step 5. If you are awarded a grant, we will work with relevant administrative offices to help you manage your grant. If you are unsuccessful, we help you determine the reasons for this and how to start the process over again.
