Engineering Research Transforming Our World
Research Proposal Development Vision
To support and enhance the engineering research grant development success with special emphasis on large collaborative grant development and early career faculty.
Services Available: Various levels of support and feedback depending on the researcher's needs
Brainstorming and Funding Identification: The expectation is that the document may or may not exist. The grant development manager will work with faculty one-on-one or in conjunction with a group to identify research gaps and potential funding for various needs within the departments. This will take 2–3 business days depending on the number of current applications for preliminary scheduling and ongoing scheduling or emailing of feedback.
Proposal Development: The expectation is that the document is 20% to 80% complete. The grant development manager will provide one-on-one support for writing sections or group collaborative proposal development. You will receive specific feedback on various sections of the document and potential revisions in track changes. This will take 1–2 weeks or 3–5 business days depending on the development stage, the number of current applications for preliminary review and ongoing scheduling or emailing of feedback.
Editing: The expectation is the document is 80% or more complete. The grant development manager will review the document for the format, request for application/funder alignment, grammar, and any other key concerns. You will receive specific feedback on various sections of the document and potential revisions in track changes. This will take 2–3 business days depending on the number of current applications.
