Proposal Development

Welcome to Proposal Development. The Institute for Research and Collaboration is here to support faculty and University personnel in the pursuit and administration of externally funded grants and contracts, in compliance with the requirements established by Federal and State laws, sponsor rules and regulations and University policies and procedures.

We are here to help you in the preparation of proposals by assisting in the pre-award, award, and post-award activities. We provide advice and assistance with identifying potential sources of funding, development of projects, budget preparation, completing applications, proposal editing and review, as well as other aspects of the proposal development process.  A Checklist to assist you in the process is included in the Proposal Development Guidebook. We serve as the facilitator to aid the principal investigator from project inception to closing of a funded grant or contract.
