Whether you are writing a grant proposal, navigating the ins and outs of finding funding for your undergraduate research (UR) program or just trying to figure out where to start, the entire process can feel like climbing a mountain.

  • Deliver practical advice and case studies 
  • Offer encouragement and support for those on the journey of seeking funding
  • Give space for dialogue between stakeholders
  • Build collaboration with research officers
  • Support faculty/sponsored research teams
