Grant-Writing Assistance 

The IP Grants Office can offer assistance with a variety of tasks associated with the grant process. We are interested in helping IP faculty and staff develop proposals for external funding in support of their research, teaching, and service goals, especially those related to the mission of International Programs. The IP Grants Office can also help faculty and staff identify appropriate sources of external funding for individual projects.
