Office of Grants & Contracts

About the OGC mission and services

The Office of Grants & Contracts (OGC) supports the institution’s faculty and staff in their pursuit and management of external funding from grants and contracts which promote LCSC’s mission, priorities and programs. The unit also provides compliance monitoring for the institution. 

To fulfill this role, the OGC is responsible for ensuring all grants that LCSC will become the fiscal agent for have received official approval from Central Administration and Institutional areas impacted by the proposed project.

The OGC does not provide assistance to students seeking grant money for school. Please visit the Financial Aid Office for assistance.

The OGC is not affiliated with the Institutional Development Grant Program.
