Proposal Development

CFSR staff help with the preparation and writing of proposals for both institutional projects and sponsored research and projects led by faculty. Since faculty members are best able to show their passion and expertise for their own projects, they are expected to take the lead role in writing their grant proposal. CFSR staff will assist in developing a strategy, polishing the narrative, proofreading, ensuring that the proposal meets all RFP guidelines and priorities, and submitting the final application. It is very important that you contact CFSR staff well in advance of the submission deadline--at least 30 days for foundation submissions and two or three months in advance of federal submission deadlines.
