4.8 Changes to the Award

GFCR is responsible for the college’s relationships with funders and for interpreting their intent in awarding grants. Occasionally, unforeseen circumstances require that an award be altered significantly. Requests for revisions to active grants must be submitted through the Grants, Foundation and Corporate Relations Office for internal Macalester review regardless of the requirement for funder approval. These revisions can include an extension of the award period, budget revisions, requests to incur costs prior to the start date of the award, changes in project activities that affect the scope of the project, and changes in key personnel. A Grant Revision Request Form must be completed for each change.
