Spring 2019 Issue - College Grants News

In this issue we profile both faculty and alumni successes, alert you to upcoming deadlines that may be of interest, and provide access to resources.

The OCG team will be on campus throughout the summer. So, as your semester responsibilities ease up, feel free to contact us, stop over to the Buchanan House for a cup of tea or coffee, and chat about your upcoming plans and how we can assist you. (And, check out Grant, the tortoise! His photo is at the bottom.)
