What We Do:
MICA's Office of Corporate, Foundation and Government Relations seeks to position the College for long-term, sustainable support from corporate and private foundations and government agencies.
How We Do It:
We identify, apply for and manage grants that help to advance MICA's core institutional priorities. These tend to be renewable and multi-year grants for such institutional needs as academic scholarships, general operating support, and new academic priorities.
The Office of Corporate, Foundation and Government Relations also assists faculty and staff in pursuing external grant funding opportunities that may fall outside of these parameters. These tend to be smaller grant awards for one-time projects or programs.
The Office of Corporate, Foundation and Government Relations identifies, cultivates, solicits, and manages several million dollars in grant-based funding per year.
