Assistance with Grant Writing 

If you would like assistance with the writing or editing of your grant proposal, ORAD can arrange for professional writers to work with you (given sufficient lead time before the application deadline).   The Director of Research and Development is also happy to review proposals for feedback prior to submission.   Workshops in Grant Writing are offered throughout the academic year.
