Proposals Preparation



Grant-Writing Resources

The list below features websites that offer grant-writing tips, guides, and tutorials. The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs also schedules grant writing workshops throughout the year.  Check the ORSP workshops & training calendar or call ext. 75940 for information.

Keep in mind that funding agencies report the most common problem with proposals is failure to follow directions.  If you are preparing a proposal in response to an announced funding opportunity, carefully read the instructions and guidelines.  If you need assistance in interpreting grant program guidelines, contact ORSP.
