For faculty interested in proposal capture services, please first contact your college grant coordinator. As a team, your college’s grant coordinator and Research & Proposal Development Services will work to ensure your proposal receives efficient project management and expert advice. If your school or college does not have a grant coordinator, please reach out to Carrie to see how Research & Innovation can help.
