The focus of the WCJC Grants & Resource Development Office is to provide technical
assistance to support research, scholarly activities, and creative engagement of administrators,
faculty, and staff in seeking funding to meet College goals. Most automatic “formula
grants” from state or federal sources are handled by the individual program administrators.
Faculty, staff, and administrators who wish to develop and submit applications in
response to open, competitive requests for proposals are required to process their
grant proposals through the Grants & Resource Development Office.
The Grants & Resource Development Office can assist grant seekers to identify potential sources of external funding, clarify
the requirements of funding announcements, obtain copies of past successful applications
that could serve as models for a new application, assist with drafting the application,
format and copy-edit the application, and submit the application once it has been
approved by the President.
