How can we help?

The Office of Proposal Development is a service unit, working with Illinois faculty and other researchers to prepare proposals to secure external funding. The Office of Proposal Development provides comprehensive project management and proposal development services to support the preparation and submission of large-scale, interdisciplinary proposals. We help Illinois faculty members and other researchers to identify funding opportunities, coordinate interdisciplinary teams, develop compelling proposals and connect with relevant university resources, with the ultimate goal of securing external funding. The OPD is also a resource for the campus grants development community, serving as an information clearinghouse and repository for best practices in the field.
