Kent State's Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations
has a new Web page that provides faculty and staff with
information about funding opportunities and resources.

A new sub-site of the Kent State University Institutional Advancement website has been created for the Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations at www.kent.edu/cfr.

The Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations builds relationships with private foundations and businesses to encourage interest in funding programs. The team works closely with university administrators, faculty and staff to provide centralized communication about funding opportunities for research, interdisciplinary projects and institutional priorities. Team members can also assist you with proposal development and strategy.

The new Web page provides administrators, faculty and staff with information about funding opportunities and resources, and is designed to help you access the latest funding information and to use the correct protocol to contact funders.

Below is a summary of information available at the new www.kent.edu/cfr Web page:
