Liberal Arts Grants Services

Grants Services supports faculty, graduate students, and staff in the College of Liberal Arts. We encourage a culture of grant seeking in the Humanities and Social Sciences and aim to:

  • Help grant­-seekers find funding opportunities through the COLA Grants Digest.
  • Disseminate funding opportunities announced by the Office of the Vice President of Research to faculty.
  • Ensure the research community stays informed of updates and changes to University, city, state, and federal policies and procedures.
  • Assist researchers with proposal development including budget and budget justification preparation and inform individuals on the fellowship and grant submission process.
  • Facilitate faculty and graduate student grant submissions through the Office of Sponsored Projects (OSP) and the Office of Corporate Relations and Foundation Relations (OCRFR).
  • Perform outreach efforts through workshops and in-person meetings in order to educate the community on resources and tools offered in the College of Liberal Arts and at The University of Texas.
  • Provide guidance to grant awardees and their departments on post-award matters.
