This site has been developed as a resource to assist faculty and staff in finding, applying for, and obtaining grants or other sponsored research opportunities. The site currently has resources related to grantsmanship (how to write grants), funding sources (where to look for funding), information about the use of human subjects (including the procedures and forms required to obtain approval for using human subjects in research), and guidelines regarding ethics in research. For additional details regarding specific procedures, approval processes, and assistance with the budget section when applying for a grant, see the Tech Specifics page.
The Grants Research Center (GRC) is affiliated with the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU). The GRC provides numerous benefits to member institutions ranging from current grant opportunities to the ability to search for grants. Arkansas Tech University is a member of both AASCU and GRC. The following link provides a synopsis of the types of services offered by GRC.
