Grants Management (Under Construction)


The Grants Management (GM) office supports MCC’s goals by assisting faculty and staff in seeking and procuring grants for programs and projects that align with institution, division and department goals and objects, pursuant to MCC’s strategic plan.

Support includes:

  • Identifying funding opportunities
  • Facilitating stakeholders’ meetings
  • Developing grant proposals and budgets
  • Submitting grant applications

Grants Management and Process

The GM office was established to plan, direct and administer MCC’s grants program. It manages and facilitates the grant process and ensures compliance with awarded grants:

  • Collectively works with the Principal Investigator (PI) to seek and procure grant funding through a complete vetting process.
  • Actively seeks approval from Administration to proceed.
  • Collaboratively assists the PI with the proposal writing process.
  • Jointly works with the PI and Budget Director to establish funding line items once notification of a grant award has been received.
  • Continually provides assistance to the PI with best practice solutions to issues encountered during the grant term.
  • Frequently reviews progress to ensure compliance with the grant’s requirements.

Project Development

Applying for a competitive grant is a dynamic process. The project’s proposal must address the needs of all relevant stakeholders, including students, the college and the local community. Along with being practical and measurable, a successful proposal addresses priorities and criteria pursuant to overall goals and objectives of the college. A winning grant program proposal includes how the goals of sustainability will be met at the end of the grant.
