Grants Office

The grants office (formerly foundation and government relations) works to secure funding for faculty scholarship, institutional programs, and Hampshire College initiatives, by providing a range of services that help build partnerships between the College and public and private organizations.

We manage the grant-seeking and grants administration processes by:

  • working with faculty on grants for scholarly work and fellowship applications;
  • researching potential funding sources;
  • writing and editing proposals;
  • helping manage deadlines;
  • assisting with interim and final grant reports;
  • providing institutional documents and data required by funders;
  • and more!
