External Funding & Grant Assessment

The Bates College office of Sponsored Programs and Research Compliance (SPaRC) supports faculty and staff with grants, contracts, and cooperative agreements through all stages of the process. Most externally funded projects require some type of assessment or evaluation component. In cooperation with other supporting offices and personnel, Bates IRAP can assist faculty and staff with developing assessment plans for applications as well as identifying, collecting, visualizing, and reporting assessment data when the grant is awarded.

We can support individual faculty or staff with targeted projects as well as larger departmental, program-level or institutional initiatives. Recent Bates IRAP support has included HHMI Inclusive Excellence, Kessler Scholars Program, Bates Leads, and more.

If your request includes institutional data, you can complete the Data Request form in advance.
