Since a properly prepared proposal has a better chance of obtaining funding than one that is not prepared properly, the project director should allocate sufficient time for planning, coordinating, and preparing a proposal.
OSPR staff provides faculty and staff with proposal preparation assistance by clarifying sponsors' submission procedures, aiding in budget development, and interpreting federal, state, and university policies related to sponsored projects.
We encourage you to consult with us early during proposal and budget development so that we can help you review the program solicitation or request for proposals (RFP’s) and determine if there are any special eligibility concerns or potential obstacles. By making early contact we can facilitate the overall application process, allocate adequate resources to assist you, and add value to your submission.
