Grants And Resource development



West Los Angeles College actively seeks funding from outside grantors and government agencies to support academic and career technical programs and to assist students. The college encourages faculty and departments to apply for grants that further institutional, divisional, departmental, and programmatic goals. If you receive a grant award, we will review the granting agency’s reporting requirements, and work with you to ensure they are met.

These resources are drawn from a wide variety of sources including the Foundation Center, government agencies, professional organizations, and colleges and university development web sites.
