The Grants Resource Center
The Grants Resource Center (GRC), a unit of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU), has enhanced the research and sponsored programs capabilities of higher education institutions since 1967. VSU’s subscription to GRC provides you with access to a comprehensive suite of tools, services, and expertise to improve your office’s efficiency and increase success in securing competitive grants from federal and private sponsors. To access all the resources GRC has to offer, you will need to acquire the VSU login credentials from OSPRA. You can do so by contacting any member of our staff or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and including "GRC Credentials" in the subject line.
For more information and help navigating all the benefits of your GRC subscription, contact Kerry in the Office of Sponsored Programs and Research Administration at (229) 245-3828 or emailing him at email@example.com.
