Faculty research support

Proposal development, processing, and post-award support is available to all College of Science faculty, staff, and students preparing and managing grant proposals and awards. All members of the Grant Support Team aim to provide prompt, accurate service and high-level knowledge of grant processes, internal and external to the University of Nevada, Reno.

The Pre-Award Team can help you submit proposals regardless of how close you are to the deadline (see the submission process below for details). Please be aware that assistance may be limited in cases where advance notice of the proposal was not given. To maximize the use of these resources, please contact us as soon as possible.
