Grant Advisory Team​​

The Grants Office is currently in a period of transition. In order to continue suppo​​rting faculty and staff from SMC, the Grant Advisory Team was formed to address some of the most basic functions of the Grants Office. These include reviewing new grant opportunities, supporting renewal of existing funded projects where possible, and facilitating grant related professional development. However, the Grants Advsiory Team is not available to write new grant proposals or reports for currently funded projects. Departments or service areas are responsible for drafting their own grant application at this time. 

During this period of transition, all new grant proposals being developed should be submitted to the Grants Advisory Team for pre-approval before they are submitted to any funding agency.

The Grants Advisory Team reports to the college President. For additional information and/or assistance from the Grant Advisory Team, please contact Erica LeBlanc or Gary Huff.

​Please note: During the current period of transition, many of these supports may be unavailable.

The primary goal of the Grants Office is to support faculty and staff from SMC, as well as the college's community partners, to navigate the college's grant development and grant management processes. Specific activities include:

  • Prospect Research — finding the right grant to support your idea (Contact the Grants Advisory Team for more information.)

  • Grant Development — writing a winning proposal (Currently not available)

  • Grant Management — implementing a grant-funded project that achieves its outcomes on-time, within budget, and in accordance with state, federal, and college rules and regulations (Currently, grant management is the responsibility of the department or service area.)

In addition to supporting the grant development/grant management process, the Grants Office works with other campus constituency groups to support resource development in general at SMC. Other sources of funding including:

  • State and federal appropriations

  • Partnership arrangements that may or may not involve a sharing of financial resources, but rather human resources, technological innovations, physical space, and/or students.

  • Volunteer services

  • Inkind contributions

  • Financial gifts

To carry out these goals, the Grants Office works closely with several other SMC departments and can help you liaison with these groups. Partners include:
