The Academic Grants Office at King's College, part of the Academic Affairs Department, advances academic initiatives and faculty research by helping faculty obtain external sources of funding.
The Academic Grants Office mission is to facilitate the procurement of external support by assisting faculty in the identification of private and government funding sources and with the development of grant proposals; by documenting and promoting the achievements of those who procure grants; and by facilitating the grant compliance process.
