History

The CGR is a group of sponsored program officers and grant writers from Oklahoma’s regional universities. The council was formed as an outcome of the Oklahoma universities and colleges grant administrators’ meeting hosted by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education in July 2004. The organization focuses on the importance of using external funding as a means to drive intellectual capital on campuses and as a means to support high-quality learning experiences for students. It encourages the successful pursuit of funding opportunities through collaboration and provides a network of support to advance grantsmanship and research activities among Oklahoma’s institutions of higher education.

Membership

Membership is divided into two categories: Full and Affiliate.

Full membership is open to all sponsored program officers at the regional universities in the state of Oklahoma. Full membership members have voting rights and the right to hold office.

Affiliate membership is open to sponsored program officers at Oklahoma public/independent universities and community colleges as well as to emeritus members of CGR and the OSRHE coordinator of grant writing and external funding assistance. Though affiliate members do not have voting rights and cannot hold office, they will benefit from the sharing of grant-related information in terms of policies and resources.

Contact Christine Fisher, coordinator of grant writing and external funding assistance, at cfisher@osrhe.edu if you would like to join CGR.
