Research Development is a unit within the Office of Research. Research Development Specialists guide researchers through the proposal submission process and assist with idea generation, opportunity searches, and preparing competitive proposals (e.g., reviewing, editing, providing document support).
We will be sharing select funding opportunities and updates with you on a bi-weekly basis; look for our messages every other Wednesday. Please click the links below for detail on specific opportunities.
