GO News - May 2022

GO News – May 2022

Welcome to the first edition of ‘GO News’: a monthly newsletter providing grants office information (workshop offerings, policy updates, funding opportunities, etc.). The Grants Office is now a full-service, life-cycle office providing faculty and staff grant seekers with support at every stage of a grant (both federal and private funders); we can help with finding funding opportunities, proposal and budget prep., proposal submission, award acceptance/negotiation, award set-up and management and compliance through the life of the award.

Going forward, GO News will be available as an opt-in email, so please click here to be added to the mailing list.

Feel free to reach out to the new Grants Office Director, Brenda Thomas (bst1​@williams​.edu) with any grant-related questions and plan to stop by the Faculty House on May 12 from 4pm – 5pm for a “Meet the Grants Office” workshop, where Brenda will provide an overview of Grants Office services.
