About Research and Proposal Development
Welcome to RPD!
The Research and Proposal Development (RPD) unit within the Offices of Research, Innovation, and Economic Development (ORIED) assists faculty and staff with the development of grant and contract proposals to external funding agencies and organizations.
Services provided include assistance with the conceptualization of project ideas, refinement of proposal narratives, and development of project budgets. Additionally, here you can find grant writing and other resources to aid in the development of developing competitive proposals for external funding. For a full list of services and the associated timelines, see the ORIED Proposal Services Matrix.
Planning a Submission?
In accordance with ORIED's Proposal Submission Guidelines, it is recommended that you complete a Proposal Intake Form as soon as you identify a funding opportunity or request for proposals/applications for which are considering or plan to apply. Notifications received by ORIED within 3 weeks of a funding agency deadline will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis to assess staff capacity to assist, and we are no longer able to guarantee that proposals with short notice will be able to move forward to submission
All final proposal elements including a Proposal Approval Form (PAF) signed by your dean and chair and other campus officials must be received by ORIED no later than 2 full business days before the submission deadline to allow for final review and finalization.
