Grant Funding - Corporate Relations
The Office of Corporate Relations serves as a coordination point and in many instances a portal for Fairfield's many relationships with the business community. The Office works closely with various campus entities and with the University's corporate partners to develop and support collaborative activities beneficial to industry, higher education, and the community at large. Partnerships include internships, collaboration on research projects, scholarships for financially needy and talented students, sponsorships of special events and student-centered activities, executive speakers, and corporate education.
The Office of Corporate Relations works with faculty as they pursue support for their research. The process involves an initial one-on-one discussion, the development of a short summary of the research, a comprehensive review of funding sources, and preparation of proposals and related budgets for submission. To pursue a Corporate Grant, please review the recommended next steps.
