Mary Ellis Rice

Director of Grant Relations Advancement

I’m Mary Ellis Rice, and I serve as the Director of Grant Relations in the Office of Institutional Advancement. I can help faculty and staff identify available grants, write and edit grant proposals, and monitor grant awards.

While I didn’t attend Emory & Henry as a student, I did graduate from another small college, Presbyterian College in Clinton, South Carolina. Small liberal arts colleges are unique, transformative places, and I’m so proud to work to support them here in the Office of Advancement at E&H.

I received a Bachelor of Arts with honors from Presbyterian College in Clinton, South Carolina, a Master of Arts in Rhetoric, Writing, and Linguistics from The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and a graduate certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) from Columbia University.

If you’d like to talk about external funding opportunities, feel free to come by any time to discuss possibilities! Please let me know how I can support you.
