Transitioning to More Complex Grants

F&A helps colleges and university programs develop scaffolding to support a successful grant culture on campus, starting with the identification and analysis of strengths and challenges within the institution and recommendations to leverage strengths and overcome challenges.


General Workflow

Help them understand the difference in grants

Initial consultation to discuss advantages of all levels of grant complexity

  • Discussions on the overall competitive grant process

  • Develop an idea within a safe environment

  • Create opportunities for undergraduates & keep them engaged in the process

  • Navigate offices critical to developing a strong proposal

  • Nurture partnerships and collaborations

  • Create renewable grant cycles

  • How to proceed whether a proposal is accepted or denied


Grant complexity as a matter of size and scope

  • All grants serve a purpose and have value

  • Navigating the administrative commitment

  • Deciding on pursuing a grant that "alters the landscape" versus a more local impact

  • Constructing a project design that 

F&A works with client

  • Helping an institution choose which grants are right for them - duplicate the process on the duplicating the interview process for the scaffolding page (change it a bit) Discussing what type of grant - is it because .... more complex requires more moving parts - why do they want complex grants (we want larger bucks coming in - then F&A comes in to talk about what grants they are working on. Would involve workshops to help understand the difference.) Report on how research is changing at the institution.

  • If F&A cannot fully address a complex question on the fly, we follow up within a few days

F&A obtains feedback from client and/or workshop participants

Workshop fees depend on its structure and the number of participants. Contact F&A for more details.
