Faculty grants and grant administration

The Moravian University Grants Office is your source for information on external funding opportunities, assistance with preparing grant applications, and assistance with managing grant awards. Contact the Grants Office for help with the "three Rs:"


  • Talk with us about your research interests so that when opportunities become available, we know whether or not they are a fit for your research.
  • Talk with us about specific ideas you have for a project so that we can explore whether or not there are external funds available for it.


  • Have a source of external funding but you’re not sure how to get started with an application?
  • Need general institutional information for an application?
  • Need help with budgeting?
  • Need help reviewing and copyediting?
  • We can help with all of these aspects of grant writing, and more!


  • Most grant awards require reporting on the success of the grant at least once or twice during the grant period. We can help with both the narrative and financial pieces of a report.
