Carleton’s Grants Office announces summary of 2021–22 grants and awards
It was a successful fiscal year for the Grants Office.
The Carleton Grants Office had a successful fiscal year 2022. Working with faculty and staff colleagues across the college, the office helped Carleton to garner a total of $2,334,148 on 35 new grant awards and brought in $4,195,452 in cash, including a $1,285,983 payment toward the Schuler Access Initiative. For the second year in a row, the office set a new record for faculty grants: 19 individuals received 25 new awards worth a total of $1,867,003, exceeding FY21, the previous all-time high, by $362,000. Associate director Charlotte Whited and sponsored research grants specialist Dee Menning deserve kudos for their tireless work in support of faculty applicants and awardees.
New awards accounted for only part of the Grants Office’s collaboration with faculty and staff members, students and community partners. In generating and honing project ideas, preparing proposals—they submitted 63 proposals in FY22, requesting $5.4M—and stewarding awards, the Grants Office helped advance a wide range of activities that further the college’s mission, including several complex grants that support the new Community Plan for Inclusion, Diversity and Equity (IDE). Extending a now-permanent trend, the office also attended carefully to existing and emerging compliance matters.
