For Faculty

Assist with the development of proposals, grants, and reports.

We can assist with the development of proposals, grants, and reports. We can also position you with the best private and public partners for your project or interest.

CFR resources for Lehigh faculty 
The Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations (CFR) helps build connections — partnerships — between Lehigh and companies, foundations, and community organizations.

Partnerships can be about research, scholarship, the student experience, the job pipeline, workforce education, philanthropy, and much more.

CFR is part of the Office of Development and Alumni Relations (DAR), working closely with Lehigh’s colleges and our central research enterprise. Our structure keeps us integrated with fundraising and engaged with leadership and staff across the university.

How we can help

  • Advise on the best strategies for finding support for your work
  • Identify opportunities for private funding 
  • Navigate funder and university policies and procedures and identify the office most appropriate to handle applications and awards
  • Connect you to Lehigh contacts with existing relationships, including alumni 
  • Liaise with funders and develop and manage relationships
  • Support your development of compelling and competitive letters of inquiry and proposals
  • Steward partnerships with funders
