Proposal Writing Resources

This page provides a wide array of tools and resources for UO faculty and students seeking funding for their research. Please explore the links below as you begin your grant writing, and reach out to Research Development Services if you have questions.

New to grant writing? Or maybe just new to a particular funder? Follow these Dos and Don'ts to help guide you as you develop and write your proposal.

Don't reinvent the wheel for your Facilities, Resources, or Background sections. Use boilerplate for many resources, such as Postdoctoral Mentoring Plans, and descriptions of Core Facilities, the Libraries, and more. 

RDS can help coordinate and pay for External Review of proposals by content experts and for Visualization and Graphic Design for proposals.

We are committed to leading and supporting the development of grants to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion across the research enterprise. Use these resources to support proposal development for this type of funding.
