Request Assistance and Services

The Office of Research Development Services covers the full range of the grant life cycle, including identifying sponsors, building collaborative teams, supporting proposal development, providing training, and working with funding agencies.

As part of these services, VCU faculty may request one-on-one meetings with team members to enhance their research and proposal development efforts. Small group meetings and customized group training workshops are also available.
