Sponsored Programs supports Gallaudet faculty and staff seeking internal and external funding for projects that benefit the Gallaudet community. We distribute information about funding opportunities and offer guidance throughout the research journey – from the proposal stage to finalizing grants and contracts.

We work to match Gallaudet faculty and staff with extramural sponsors and serve as an important partner in transforming the community’s ideas into funded research projects.
