About Us

The KUCC Grants Development Office is available to assist faculty and researchers in the development of a grant proposal from conceptualization to the final submission of a proposal. The level of assistance provided during the development process varies based on the complexity of the grant proposal, the experience of the proposer(s) and the need for a team approach to develop the proposal. Most of our services are in the pre-award area, but we are also able to assist with non-financial post-award activities.
