Seeking Grants and other Funding

Thank you for your interest in working with FCR. Our mission as an office is to support the great work you are doing across campus to support the overarching mission of Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi.

We understand that external partnerships and support can help us grow as a university to increase our impact in the community and improve quality of life and student retention across campus. We want to support you in your efforts to find that support.

The University has existing relationships with many organizations throughout the Coastal Bend and beyond. Because of this, we ask that before you contact an organization to inquire about partnership opportunities or to solicit funding, you reach out to our office so that we can ensure that your request does not conflict with requests made by other departments on campus.

When seeking grant funding from a charitable foundation, most foundations require that organizations have a 501c3 status in order to receive funding. Our office works closely with the Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Foundation to ensure that we have their approval to receive funding on behalf of the University.

If you have any questions about how to work with FCR, please reach out to Kimberly Becerra at or 361.825.2639.
