Proposal Development

The Proposal Development Office is committed to increasing and diversifying external funding at the University of Montana.  Toward this end, we are dedicated to (1) providing assistance with seeking external funding; (2) training individuals to independently seek and procure funding; (3) facilitating interdisciplinary collaborations; and (4) providing the resources and tools necessary for researchers to successfully prepare grant proposals.

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) supports faculty, staff, and graduate students in their research and creative endeavors.
