Making it happen

Successful grantwriting begins with good ideas. Who will benefit? Why is the idea innovative? Successful submissions often emerge from concepts already in development. If you are convinced about the potential, write a short two or three-page pre-proposal. Reach out to mentors and colleagues and seek feedback. The earlier we know in the Office of Research, the more analysis and review we can contribute to enhance your proposal.

Want to look at example applications? Ask us about samples for different sponsors. Need help with budgeting personnel costs, fringe, equipment, materials, travel, publications, subcontracts, consultant costs and indirect costs, letters of commitment, resubmission, formatting a biosketch, writing a cover letter, or budget justification? Let us help analyze your draft proposals, review narratives, send you checklists, budget templates, or answer questions about NIH, NSF, HRSA, or other sponsor requirements.
