We can help identify potential funders, gain the appropriate internal approvals, develop a proposal narrative, and submit grants on your behalf. If your grant is awarded, we will partner with you through the entire process, right up until the final report. We work collaboratively with many departments on campus, including the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs.

Examples of recent grants include:

George Family Foundation
A grant from The George Family Foundation has allowed us to advance our MAOL Global Initiative to thoroughly embed a global perspective throughout the Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership program. By adding a global perspective to the current emphasis of ethics and leadership found within the program, students will graduate with the skills to leverage differences and diversity for organizational effectiveness, and influence organizations to make ethical, global decisions.

A partnership with Allianz enabled St. Catherine University to host the inaugural Global Women’s Leadership Convening. Women leaders from Israel, Jordan and Minnesota gathered on the St. Paul campus in the summer of 2011 to collect experiences of diverse women in public life. This wisdom will be used to create new models to propel more women into leadership roles in government, business, academia and elsewhere in the United States and around the world.

GE Money
ING Foundation
Continued support from each of these foundations has advanced the work of St. Catherine University’s award-winning Money Management Program. The program addresses the need for financial education and provides a comprehensive range of resources and support covering a broad spectrum of financial issues. The program is available to all St. Catherine students and their families, with approximately 600 students directly participating in and benefiting from activities.
