ORD Resources

ORD provides resources critical for funding opportunities that require transformative, transdisciplinary, collaborative, and convergent research. ORD provides training in grant writing as well as customized workshops and informational sessions that target specific funding agencies or programs.

Proposal Repository

The Office of Research Development Proposal Repository contains a vast library of proposals to offer researchers examples from which to guide their proposal-writing strategies. Proposals can be filtered by funding agency and/or document type, such as full proposals, data management plans, logic models, reviews, letters of collaboration, and others. Users can also search document titles, authors, categories and types by keyword. This archive will be continually updated. To contribute a proposal or a section of a proposal to the repository, please contact Morgan Simpson at
