Welcome to the Office of Foundation & Corporate Relations. This office helps to secure grants for Allegheny College and its faculty and staff from foundations, corporations and government agencies. We raise money for institutional priorities including capital improvements, curricular and faculty development, individual faculty research projects, academic programs, student development programs and student scholarships.

This site provides basic information about the grant-seeking process: how to identify funding sources, how to prepare proposals and how to manage grants once funding has been received. In addition, you can learn more about some of the people and projects at Allegheny that are supported through grants.

Interested in seeking a grant? Great!

Our office can help you in a number of ways. For example, we can work with you to:

  • Discuss strategies for funding your project
  • Refine your ideas to improve chances of receiving funding
  • Identify funding sources
  • Process the mandatory¬†grant endorsement form*
  • Read and edit your proposal
  • Prepare a budget
  • Provide institutional data
  • Assemble, copy and mail your final proposal
  • Prepare routine and final reports once a grant has been secured

*Please note that the endorsement form must be submitted at least 10 days before the proposal deadline. Of course, the more assistance you need, the further in advance we need to know about your project.
