With federal funding on the decline and demands for research funding increasing, Vanderbilt University has expanded the Corporate and Foundation Relations department to provide additional support to faculty in their applications for private research grants of $25,000 and above. Director Kimberly Berry and Executive Director Dinessa Solomon will provide an overview of how they are working collaboratively with grant managers and other campus partners to connect faculty to funding opportunities, cultivate partnerships with foundation and corporate donors, strategically edit letters of inquiry and proposals, and develop stewardship strategies for funded projects. They will also share information about several upcoming opportunities.
