For many grant applications, standard language about the university environment, research capacity and resources will be required. However, to make your proposal competitive, this language should be relevant. It should be tailored, as much as possible, to the funding opportunity and the project being proposed.
The Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation will provide boilerplate language for your grant proposals. Complete and submit the form below no less than three weeks prior to your application submission deadline. Late requests may not be filled. Contact Melissa Throckmorton at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information and assistance.
