The Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations (CFR) secures funding from corporations, foundations, and government agencies to support the scholarly interests and institutional priorities of Wheaton College. CFR staff works directly with faculty members to obtain external support for ongoing research, creative projects, and collaborative work with students. Faculty are encouraged to contact CFR staff early in the grant-seeking process to discuss proposal ideas and to help identify potential sources for project support. In addition, CRF will assist faculty throughout the process with:

  • proposal development
  • oversight of the college’s approval process
  • preparation of a letter of endorsement from the President or Provost
  • submission of the proposal to the funding agency
  • stewardship of all narrative and financial interim and final reports
