Grants Office

The Bellevue College Grants Office coordinates grant development efforts to advance the mission and strategic direction of the college. It offers support to all college departments and personnel seeking grant opportunities. All grant concepts and applications are vetted to ensure alignment with college strategic priorities, prevent duplication of efforts, and maximize success. The Grants Office is a college-wide department under Institutional Advancement.

Faculty & Staff Grant Concepts & Opportunities

All grant concepts or potential opportunities must be supported by a Case Statement, which is presented to the Grant Pre-approval Committee. Curious about the steps needed to get there? Check out our Grant Pre-Approval flowchart. Faculty and staff looking to participate in current or ongoing grant applications can check the Grants Calendar to learn about what grant opportunities are coming up or have already passed.

Please use the Case Statement Form to guide development of your Case Statement. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to Grants Office staff.

More details here on the Grants Preapproval Process Steps.
