PALS Faculty: Introduction to Grants for PALS Faculty

Grantsmanship and other resources for PALS Faculty.

History of Philanthropy & You

As a PALS faculty, you are an important part of an academic culture comprised of many traditions.  One of these traditions is external funding, that is, support from a benefactor that allows you to build and enhance your expertise.     Your benefactor may be a foundation or other private sector group, a coporate entity, or government (local or national).  Here are just a few sites where you can begin to learn about the history of philanthropy. Many countries have rich histories of giving.  Where do you fit in?
