The Office of Corporate, Foundation, Faculty & Institutional Grants is UB’s one-stop shop for all grants of interest to the UB community: research, fellowships, programming, equipment, and others
We work closely with faculty and staff to identify funding opportunities, review eligibility and other requirements, identify program officers for initial contact, assist in proposal and budget development, and secure institutional review and approvals through to submission. We maintain a subscription to a searchable database for federal, state, and private foundation funding that is available to the UB community.
For all grant awards, we negotiate grant acceptance and facilitate a smooth transition to grants management (which includes grants accounting). We provide continual oversight for compliance and reporting requirements through grant closeout.
Our office maintains UB’s active registration for proposal submission to federal agencies and we initiate individual faculty member registration in agency-specific portals. In addition, we monitor agency and funding developments, subscribe to list serves, participate in webinars and conferences on forecasted opportunities, and stay current with federal and state grant and contract compliance requirements.
