Grant Proposal Development

Proposal Preparation

In 2018 CAHNR will officially begin utilizing Sponsored Programs Services (SPS) Faculty Services proposal development services.  Faculty Services was developed to provide exceptional dedicated proposal development support to participating Colleges.  The goal of this program is to grow and support the research enterprise by simplifying the proposal submission process and to reduce the administrative burden to faculty.   Faculty Services hired 2 new team members, Kelly Cunningham and Emma Mulvey to support CAHNR.  In the coming months, Kelly and Emma will start to support CAHNR. The transition plan for each department is outlined below.   

Departments that are waiting to be officially onboarded should contact facultyservices@uconn.edu  and someone will be assigned to assist you with your proposal.
