  • Welcome to the Office of Proposal Development! 

    Our Office's mission is to serve faculty researchers as they conceptualize, develop, and write their proposals to federal agencies and other entities to seek funding for their research projects.  We work across all disciplines, departments, and divisions, with the overarching goal of making the proposal development process as straightforward and streamlined as possible.

    To this end, we offer an extensive array of proposal development services, among which are the following:

    • Identifying appropriate funding opportunities;
    • Announcing limited submission opportunities and coordinating internal competitions;
    • Planning the proposal;
    • Identifying the optimal proposal strategy;
    • Managing and coordinating the preparation of the proposal;
    • Drafting non-technical sections of the proposal;
    • Providing proposal review, editorial, and design services;
    • Connecting faculty to appropriate staff and other resources throughout the university;
    • Offer proposal development training;
    • Handling other tasks related to the development of the proposal on an ad hoc basis

    If you would like assistance with your proposal, please give us a call.  We look forward to hearing from and working with you!
