The Office of Institutional Grants assists faculty, staff, and administrators with
the technical aspects of developing fundable grant proposals in response to the district’s
strategic priorities. Staff can assist in the development of ideas, identification
of funding sources, budget development, grant writing, interpretation of application
guidelines, and final preparation of the proposal. The office assists in the interpretation
of regulations and policies, oversees the programmatic requirements of grant-funded
projects, and supports the monitoring, reporting, and renewal of existing grants.

When I joined MESA I found an atmosphere of very intelligent students, in which I have made friendships that are strengthened by our commitment to success. I am 31 years old and work full-time in order to support my growing family. Time management is vital to my success, and it has taken a while to find the right "recipe" of balance between school, work and family. MESA has given me important resources in the form of tutoring, access to potential internships, and help with the cost of books.
