Federal Grant Opportunities
All federal discretionary grants can be found on the Grants.gov website. It is also the main electronic submission site for federal grants. Brunswick Community College is a registered contractor of the federal government with official points of contact. Other than the Office of Planning and Research staff, no one is authorized to submit grants on behalf of the College.
Federal grants typically require a significant investment of time on the part of those writing, editing and submitting a grant in development. Faculty and staff interested in applying for a federal grant must coordinate through the Office of Planning and Research to assure there is adequate time for grant development and submission, as well being prepared to take lead writing responsibilities with support from OPR.
