Securing research funding is a challenge. We can help you articulate your vision and plan, increasing the competitiveness of your proposal.
Refine your idea and make the case
- Search our specialized research databases to uncover previous research
- Use interlibrary loan to request materials the library doesn't have
- Conduct a comprehensive literature review with the support of your librarian
- Consult with us on archival materials or rare books through Special Collections
Initiate your proposal and secure institutional approvals
Work with your department or college business office to:
- Initiate your proposal in UAccess Research
- Begin building a budget
- Assemble the language for standard grant component parts
- Secure institutional approvals from relevant stakeholders
Develop your data and publishing plan
- See our data management website and consult with Fernando Rios, data management experts.
- For federal grants, familiarize yourself with agency policies for public access
