About the Office of College Grants

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. 

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
