At Le Moyne College, we have seen firsthand the impact research, scholarship, and creative pursuits have had on faculty, staff, students, and the College. They enhance the educational experience of all, provide an important stimulus to the economy, and teach students to become engaged and thoughtful citizens of the global community. It is clear that these must be among the foremost concerns of any educational institution.

Le Moyne College’s mission – to strive for academic excellence – is manifest in research, scholarly activity, and creativity that actively involves our faculty and staff. At Le Moyne, we select and design programs that ensure that the College is meeting its mission to provide students with an education in the Jesuit tradition that will prepare them for lives of leadership and service.

The Department of Government and Foundation Relations provides opportunities for the College to build and enhance its intellectual capital and further innovation by increasing the scope and quality of sponsored activity. This department assists faculty and staff by identifying potential sponsors and assisting with the development, submission, and management of grant proposals. 

I encourage you to explore this website and contact the Government and Foundation Relations Office to see how they can assist you throughout the grant process.
