The Office of College Grants - OCG - is responsible in part, for directing and guiding Franklin & Marshall’s students, faculty, and staff through external and internal research funding opportunities to ensure F&M’s position on the leading edge of liberal arts education. Staff members rely on core, shared values of education, quality, integrity, service, collegiality, responsibility, and accountability when providing valuable assistance at all stages of the grant or fellowship process. The OCG supports the strategic priorities of the institution across the funding lifecycle.
The OCG supports college-wide research policies, procedures, operations, support infrastructure and educational programs. These include research administration systems, and research ethics, education, and compliance. The OCG promotes the responsible and ethical conduct of research, and a culture of responsibility, ethics, and compliance among faculty, students, and staff involved in research and related activities.
The OCG also provides administrative support to the Institutional Review Board (IRB), Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC), and Committee on Grants (COG).
To effectively serve grant and fellowship seekers, the Office of College Grants houses staff from multiple divisions in one location. For a listing of staff areas of expertise click here.
