When should I contact the Office of Foundation Relations?

The sooner we are aware of your intentions to seek funding, the better we can help you navigate the process.  We will lead you through the funder’s guidelines to ensure the best possible alignment between your project and the funder’s goals.  When appropriate, we will also work with you to make initial contact with the funder.  As we help you in the development of your proposal, we will also help guide you through WPI’s internal processes for seeking funding, as needed.  This will include coordinating the appropriate review and approvals by the university’s academic and administrative management.  Finally, if required by the funder, we can help with the formal submission of your proposal.
