Office of Grants and Sponsored Programs

The Office of Grants and Sponsored Programs assists SUNY Cobleskill faculty and staff identify and apply for foundation, state and federal grants. Services provided include:


  • Finding Grant Opportunities: We will help you sign-up for the SPIN grant database which will generate a weekly email of funding opportunities that meet your area of interest.
  • Reviewing Grant Applications: We can help you interpret complex grant language and strategize an approach to developing your idea.
  • Writing and Budget Development: We can assist you with writing the grant narrative, developing the budget, completing the necessary paperwork and submitting the grant.


Faculty and staff must have the approval of a Department Chair, Dean or VP, and the Director of Grants before pursuing or submitting a grant. Please contact Barry Gell at or 518-255-5450 to discuss your idea and obtain the necessary permission.
