Proposal Development

PROPOSAL DEVELOPMENT ASSISTANCE 

Dr.  Ann Zhang, the Assistant Director of Research Development, can assist you as you are developing your proposal.  Contact Dr.  Zhang for assistance with all parts of your proposal, including interpreting FOAs, developing your budget and budget justification, non-technical document writing assistance, editing and providing feedback on the technical narrative. Dr. Zhang works closely with the College of Sciences Pre-award staff and the  Proposal Development Unit staff.

If you are submitting a large-scale (i.e., greater than $1 million), multidisciplinary research proposal, in addition to College of Sciences support, you may also qualify for assistance from the Proposal Development Unit (PDU). Use the Request PDU Services form to reach out to them.
