GRC provides access to a comprehensive suite of tools, services, and expertise to improve your office’s efficiency and increase your institution’s success in securing competitive grants from federal and private sponsors. It provides access to GRC’s sponsor database, GRC publications, and GRC's social media platforms. The website also houses sample research administration policies and a library of funded proposals.

GRC’s search engine includes approximately 1,500 private and federal funding opportunities screened for higher education eligibility. Search results provide a high proportion of viable opportunities because the database excludes solicitations that are limited to a specific region, that make fewer than three awards annually, and for which higher education institutions are not eligible to apply or partner.

NJCU is a member of GRC/AASCU.  Please contact us at for website login information.
