We want to help faculty further their research by improving grant writing skills and giving faculty access to resources. 

Our office offers RASP workshops on Faculty Research Grants and Grant Writing & Budget Development. We also post writing guides made public by other universities or services. 

CITI training:  The Essentials of Grant Proposal Development: This professional development series aims to take the mystery out of grant writing by walking participants through the process with a step-by-step guide. The course includes getting started in grant writing, finding and selecting funding opportunities, crafting a proposal development plan, creating a proposal narrative, understanding required proposal elements, preparing a budget, and more.


• Modules provide in-depth discussion, videos, exercises, and other learning elements that breakdown the critical aspects of grant proposal development.

• Focuses on a variety of funding sources, including the National Institutes of Health and National Science Foundation.


You can register here (for free!) through the University’s subscription, create an account, and add the course to your portfolio.  If you have any questions, please contact Kristel Seth at
