Developing and Submitting Proposals
Winning grants and contracts is a highly competitive effort. Early planning and scrupulous attention to detail is crucial. Our team partners with you to create and develop a strong proposal.
Proposal Routing and Approval
Before you submit your proposal to a sponsoring organization, Research Foundation staff can help ensure you've met all of the requirements.
Award Negotiation and Set-Up
After your award is finalized, we'll provide you training on our grant management system, set up purchasing accounts, and help you staff your project.
Research projects have many moving parts. You focus on the scientific inquiry, and we'll handle the administrative and financial details for you.
At the project's close, your sponsoring organization will require final reports and other deliverables. These could include technical documents and financial reports.
