Proposal Assistance

TEES is committed to assisting our faculty in developing their grantsmanship to produce the best, most competitive proposal submissions to a variety of funding agencies. Assistance varies from phone calls, face-to-face meetings, to fully participating on development of a proposal and covers items such as strategic planning, facilitating partnerships for education or research links, assisting with broader impacts, critical edits and reviews, and one-on-one workdays to springboard your proposal.

Funding Opportunities

As you become familiar with submitting proposals to various agencies in search of funding for your research and education efforts, it will become important to find information about a potential funding program as soon as it becomes available to give you the lead time needed to develop a competitive proposal. Our weekly newsletter includes a partial list of new available funding opportunities. Don’t forget to ask your peers and departmental faculty for their suggestions on funding sources. 

Proposal Development Resources

The Proposal Development Resources link will also help you learn the proposal development process to help you get started as well as a wealth of important information for you to consider during the development of your proposal. Also learn helpful information such as what the procedures are if the proposal is a Limited Submission, when should you contact the SRS office for budget assistance, and why you should keep your department head informed of your proposal submission plans.
