Each project is different. Each school is unique. At Marygrove Consulting, we help you navigate the complex federal programs and regulations of Title III and Title V.

We specialize in the Minority Serving Institutions (MSI) programs of the Department of Education. These grants provide direct funding to your institution to improve facilities, build academic programs, support student services and more.

Institutional Insight and strategic vision..
The MSI programs of the Department of Education run a variety of grant competitions that seek to improve the educational outcomes of minority students and strengthen the institutions that serve them. We have secured multi-million dollar awards for our clients and use a process that is based on the needs of the institutions we represent.
Your grant application will accurately reflect your unique mission and vision. Goals and objectives will be developed to meet student needs and to address the areas of emphasis articulated by the Department of Education. A clear and concise implementation plan will be included in your grant application so that you have a blueprint for success.
FEDERAL COMPLIANCE EVALUATION
Congratulations. You have been awarded a grant from one of the MSI programs. You may need expert evaluation advice to help you comply with the rules and regulations attached to the grant award. Marygrove Consulting is here to help. We work with your staff to design a comprehensive evaluation system that’s aimed at facilitating the goals and objectives stated in your grant.
Working with you, Marygrove Consulting designs an evaluation process that allows for immediate feedback to staff providing project services. Our evaluation plans are designed to keep you on track to accomplish project goals and meet all federal operation and spending requirements.
The Department of Education conducts an annual review of IPEDS information to determine which institutions are eligible for funding. If you have not received an MSI grant, chances are that your institution is listed as “ineligible.” We can help you get off that list.
We begin by researching your eligibility for federal funding. With you, we review the Department of Education’s Eligibility Matrix and discuss the process for requesting an eligibility determination by the DOE. There are three basic questions that must be answered:
We can help you determine where your institution ranks and help design the best approach for becoming eligible for federal grants. We only charge you a fee if we secure a federal grant for you.
