The Office of Research & Technology Transfer (ORTT) is pleased to launch the third competition for the Institute for Research Development.

(No meetings on Friday or Memorial Day). The purpose of the Institute is assisting selected faculty to craft and submit grant proposals while learning the intricacies of the grant-making process. Program components include research and evaluation design, grant writing, budgeting and planning, compliance responsibilities, and the tools of the trade.
Applicants must complete the attached form along with a project description, proposed funding source, brief literature review, current CV, and letter of support from the Chair. The project narrative and literature review are limited to a total of four single-spaced pages. Applications are submitted to the Deans. The Deans will prioritize the applications (with Priority 1 being high), make brief comments about each project, and forward all of the applications to ORTT.
