Preparing Research Center Grant Proposals

Faculty interested in developing research center concepts for convergent research and submitting large center grant proposals may find the resources listed below quite useful. The "Making the Leap to Large" workshop funded by NSF addressed how to deliver on intellectual merits and broader impacts at scale for diverse stakeholders, and how to avoid submitting a "large" proposal (particularly in the $4-$10 million range) that is made up of smaller proposals cobbled together.

Financial Support for Proposal Preparation and Development

The College of Engineering Dean’s Office is pleased to make financial support available to our faculty and programs that can enhance your success in securing grant funding. Individual Principal Investigators with a faculty-level appointment should consider the following forms of support.

Any faculty member or graduate student who needs help with a specific project or proposal issue is encouraged to consult with the Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies for consultation.

Faculty Workshop Series

During the academic year the Dean's Office hosts a monthly workshop series aimed at providing development opportunities and information for all COE faculty. Staff who support faculty in research development and administration are also welcome to attend!
