The NSU Grant Writing Laboratory provides a variety of valuable services to NSU faculty and professional staff members with the goal of improving success with grant-seeking, specifically focusing on obtaining funding for research grants.
Your needs include support for the challenge of winning grant dollars in increasingly competitive funding environment. An organizational commitment to increase sponsored funding has resulted in a central location for professional grant planning and proposal development support. The NSU Grant Writing Laboratory in room 2048 of the Alvin Sherman Library offers the right combination of training, technology, and professional grant consulting for NSU faculty and professional staff members.
All aspects of grant seeking and proposal development are addressed in the Grant Writing Laboratory, from brainstorming, grant/project planning, and funding research, to proposal writing and editing. The services offered in the Grant Writing Laboratory are closely coordinated with existing services offered by the Office of Sponsored Programs, and intended to provide faculty members with additional support in their grantseeking efforts.
