  • Provide direction with research of potential funding sources

  • Provide advice and training on developing a competitive proposal
  • Assist with proposal design and budget design
  • Review for compliance with agency, Chancellor's Office, and campus entities
  • Assist in shepherding through the approval and submittal process
