Sponsored Research Assistance at Centre College

Centre College encourages its faculty to seek grants and awards beyond the institution. The Associate Director of Corporate and Foundation Relations (AD-CFR) is the College's sponsored research officer and her role is to engage and assist you in seeking external funding.

The AD-CFR provides a number of services, such as

  • identifying funding sources,
  • guideline review,
  • writing support and copy editing,
  • serving as a clearinghouse for general information about Centre College,
  • budget preparation, and
  • facilitating with campus offices that need to approve your proposal before submission.

Please see the links below to help you get started. For assistance at any stage in the grants process, please contact Kathryn Bowles (, or via phone ext. 5212) or visit her office on the second floor of Old Centre.
