We can provide comprehensive support for new faculty, faculty new to applying for funding, or those applying to new funding agencies. Faculty can schedule an initial meeting with a grant writer to describe their current research, past experience, future research plans, and funding needs. During this meeting, we can discuss and begin to set up help for any of the following:
Setting up funding searches and refining them over time based on results
Subscribing to relevant funding agency listservs
Gathering information from research funding pages at relevant funding agencies
We suggest faculty set aside a 1- to 2-hour timeslot weekly to peruse results of standing funding searches and tweak search criteria as needed, and to browse websites of pertinent funding agencies, foundations, and professional societies.
