Please note: The complete proposal must be received by the submitting office at least five (5) full business days prior to the sponsor's due date.

One of the missions of the Business Office is to help you find great grant opportunities and write proposals that are certain to SUCCEED.  We retained three grant-writing experts who were willing to share their knowledge with you.  Their expertise is finding sponsors who already want to fund your projects, then help you write the proposal in the best way to get the support of those organizations.  Each office has unique approaches so you’re certain to find help and inspiration for your research.
