Internal Grants Overview

Introducing the Matrix

The "Matrix" is an excel document that attempts to capture all of the internal funding opportunities available to CC faculty. Please note that the Matrix does not include information on funding available to faculty in a particular department.

Please also note that the Matrix includes information on a handful of student opportunities because of the key role faculty play in students' applications. For comprehensive information on resources for students, visit the College's Funding Opportunities for Students page.

To make updates, additions or corrections to the Matrix, please contact Tess Powers, the Director of Faculty Research Support.

Other important reminders:

  • Information in the Matrix can serve only as a useful guide.
  • The funding committees reserve the right to make changes to various aspects of their program in order address changing priorities.
  • Faculty should review the updated guidelines with each call.
  • Faculty should submit their proposal ONLY during the advertised submission window.

Internal Grants by Category

Because the College's internal funding sources are generous, all faculty should be familiar with both the variety of funding options available across campus and their typical deadlines. Please see the Internal Faculty Funding Matrix for an overview of funding opportunities, eligibility information, contact information and, whenever possible, access to application guidelines.

Any special funding requests for the Dean's consideration (submitted outside of the following programs) should use the Qualtrics submission format.
