Supporting faculty in identifying, applying for, and managing funding for research activities.

Contact Leigh Edwards, Sponsored Research Officer, to get help with all external grant applications. 

Leigh is your first stop in seeking external funding and will guide you through the internal approval process. She is available to help find targeted funding opportunities, read proposal drafts, help with budgets, and give feedback with enough lead time.

The Sponsored Research Office tracks data on all grant applications and awards, so please notify Leigh Edwards of all grant activity, even if institutional approvals are not required. Funded proposals are reported at faculty meetings and posted to our website.

Mount Holyoke College is not a government contractor and does not accept government contracts or subcontracts. Questions on this policy should be directed to the Sponsored Research Officer.
