Training Opportunities

The Office of Foundation Relations holds grant training sessions throughout the academic year. The purpose of these trainings is to build familiarity with OSU grant resources and each part of the successful grant request process. Trainings are developed with colleges, departments, or offices to meet specific needs and fill knowledge gaps. Ultimately, the grant training program aims to increase overall private funding through grants.

Links to recent grant training materials can be found below. If you or your unit would like to host a faculty grant training, please contact Elizabeth Ocampo.
