Every successful grant starts with an idea. The Proposal and Pre-Award Research Coordinator can help you learn more about external funding, facilitate your progression through the proposal development and submission process, and aid in improving your capacity to continue applying for funding in the future. The Pre-Award RC is available to assist from the moment you have an idea until your funded proposal has an account number.
Should you have a question and are unsure to whom you should address it, please contact the Pre-Award Research Coordinator to point you in the right direction!
