Determining if an award is a "grant" or a "gift"

A “Grant” (also referred to as a ‘sponsored program’), is administered by the Office for Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) in accordance to policies established by The Research Foundation of SUNY (RF)

A “Gift”, can be administered by either ORSP/RF or managed by the Oswego College Foundation, Inc.

In instances where it is not readily apparent if the award is a “Grant” or when a “Gift” is
received, ORSP and the Oswego College Foundation, Inc. will collaborate to review the
award and associated documentation and make the appropriate determination.

Please see our AWARDS: GRANTS VS. GIFTS guide for additional information.
