Grants Development

The Grants Development department is responsible for providing assistance to faculty, staff, and administrators who are seeking external funding. Our office coordinates with grant seekers throughout the entire writing process, which includes the following:

The Grants Development office has been instrumental in securing millions of dollars that go directly toward serving OTC's students and others in our service region. We are proud to serve such a vital role in ensuring OTC continues its growth and mission to students and the community.
