Funding sources

Please note, the Bryan School has existing relationships with many corporate and foundation donors; however, we do not have a free hand to engage any local company or foundation for financial support. The primary responsibility for coordinating and facilitating proposed and existing relationships with corporations and foundations rests with the Office of Research and Economic Development (ORED). Please consult with Connie Uselman in the Bryan School Dean’s Office if you are interested in applying for funding from any corporations or foundations.
