Grant Writing

Purpose Statement

The purpose of grant writing in the departments of Institutional Research, Assessment, and Accountability (IRAA) and the Office of Academic Affairs is to help the Cameron University community to find and acquire grants that support CU’s mission.


Grant Writing at Cameron University is broken up into two parts: Internal and External grant opportunities. CU Internal Grants are facilitated by the Office of Academic Affairs. External grants are facilitated by the Institutional Grant Writer within the department of Institutional Research, Assessment, and Accountability (IRAA). Jointly, Academic Affairs and IRAA offer a wide range of grant writing services including assistance with internal grants, identification of external grant opportunities, assistance with the development and submission of external grants, and more. For more information, please do not hesitate to contact either department.
