How the Office of Development Can Help with Grant Seeking
The Office of Development can help identify, cultivate, coordinate, and steward faculty and staff relationships with companies and foundations, helping to secure external support for the institution and its highest priorities.
In foundation relations, our office serves as a liaison between foundation officers and UIS leadership, faculty members, and program directors. We assist with grant seeking, develop proposals, coordinate communications, and help maintain and advance the relationship beyond the grant period.
Once you know what project you would like to have funded, Marilyn Kok (right) will work with you to write proposals, create budgets, and deliver proposals where needed, online, in person, or through the mail.
