The office of Corporate, Foundation and Government Grants seeks funding from corporations, local and national foundations and government agencies in support of the needs of the University and its faculty.

Any grant being paid to Wesleyan University requires institutional approval before submission. The first step in the grant process is to complete and submit a WFS GRANT CHECKLIST (a link can be found on the right side of this page) at least TWO WEEKS in advance of the proposal deadline.  A proposal should be submitted via WFS for internal Wesleyan approval at least five business days in advance (seven days for NIH proposals) of the due date to allow for a thorough review by the Office of Corporate, Foundation & Government Grants, Grants Accounting, Academic Affairs or other office fiscal entity and the Director of Financial Services. Unless these deadlines are adhered to, we cannot guarantee review and permission to submit.
