Proposal Development

Our mission is to assist faculty, staff, and students in seeking out and applying for external funding for research, academic, and community activities.

All grant applications must go through our office. We request at least 10 business days advance notice. Proposals received without sufficient advance notice may be postponed until the next application cycle, if applicable.
Use our Intent to Apply for External Funding form* to give us advance notice of your upcoming grant proposal.

*Giving notice via the form will become mandatory beginning September 1, 2024.
