Institutional Funding and Sponsored Research

Institutional Funding and Sponsored Research are responsible for all grant applications submitted by Barnard College and/or its faculty members to foundation, corporate, and government sources.

Our team provides support in the entire application process

  • We research and identify funding opportunities tailored to specific faculty or program needs.  

  • We maintain collegial relationships with key staff at foundations and program officers in government funding agencies.

  • We work with faculty and administration to strategize applications and develop strong proposals that comply with government and foundation criteria.  

  • We assist in developing tight budgets and gathering required documentation.

  • We usually place the final submission.  

  • Post-award, we continue to provide guidance in compliance issues.  

  • We complete interim and final reports.

We publish a newsletter and maintain a Grants Calendar, both of which can be found on the Barnard website, along with other policy documents and forms required for compliance.

If you are a Barnard faculty member and are interested in receiving our bi-weekly newsletter on grant opportunities, please email
