Lourdes University

Many programs at Lourdes University depend on funding that comes from external sources.

Corporate, Foundation & Government Relations is responsible for finding funding opportunities that match the mission and strategic initiatives of the University and working with students, faculty, staff and administration to develop proposals that bring this funding to Lourdes.

Each year, the university receives more than $2 million in funding to support student success, development of new academic and student programs, capital improvements to the campus, professional development for faculty and staff, and community outreach efforts.

Corporate, Foundation and Government Relations can serve as a resource to students by providing assistance to individual students seeking fellowships to continue or expand their educational opportunities and student organizations seeking financial support or in-kind donations for a specific project or initiative.

The office also provides presentations about grant writing for classes and organizations. Students who are interested in gaining experience in grant research or writing are welcome to contact the Office of Institutional Advancement at 419-517-8990.
