Foundation Partnerships

undergraduate-open-houseInstitutional grants and sponsorships support the University’s identified needs, priorities, and special projects related to academic programs, facilities, and student life. Sponsorships and grants from corporations, foundations, and government agencies are an important source of funding for UB’s initiatives.

The Director of Institutional Grants researches and identifies potential funding opportunities and sponsors and coordinates efforts to secure funding from the private and government sectors to develop, implement, and sustain institutional projects and programs. These efforts are coordinated with the Director of Sponsored Research to maximize external funding for the University and to ensure that funding requests align with UB’s priorities, policies, and procedures.
