We offer a faculty seminar series on grant-writing and research development.
Face-to-face and online!
We meet with individual faculty or collaborative research groups to discuss proposal development strategies including when to contact program offers, how to interpret agency guidelines, which funding agencies would be interested and what University services are available.
We are often able to suggest other faculty in similar or complementary research areas for consultation and potential collaboration on projects. We can also offer best practices on forming and sustaining successful collaborations.
We develop a variety of resources to assist faculty through the proposal development process.
Examples: Funding e-Books, Proposal Development Checklist, the ORDE Blog, Know Your Agency Briefs, and more.
