Winning funds depends on aligning a concept with the right grant opportunity. St. Kate's supports research and scholarship through its internal grant programs, which provide seed funding for faculty to pilot scholarship, programming, or research projects and support travel to share scholarly work domestically and abroad. Internal grants are ideal for short-term projects (6 months to a year), and proposals that offer opportunities for student engagement in research are prioritized. External grants include short- and long-term project options (average grant period is 2-3 years), and are ideal for projects that are larger in scale and scope. The external grant process is a competitive one, but there are a large number of public and private sources that offer funding, and the dollar amounts allotted can be significant.
