Proposal Support Repository


Proposal Support Repository

The Proposal Support Repository has been developed by ORED’s Research Development team for the benefit of faculty and research development professionals in the Rutgers community who are developing funding proposals. Many of these materials are copyrighted, and the text of these materials are for educational purposes only. Please always consult the instructions delineated in the specific funding opportunity or contact the Research Development team for clarifications as needed.

Grant Toolkits:

Listed below are sample grant as well as templates and helpful tips. Always be sure that proposals follow each funding opportunity’s instructions for submission format and requirements.

Do you have a resource you would like to share, or a proposal you are proud of that you would like to make available as a sample? Please contact us to get your items included.

Requesting Research Development Services:

ORED’s Research Development team provides proposal development services to support strategic, large-scale grant submissions. ORED will provide this support for development and submission of major grant proposals that meet the eligibility requirements that meet the criteria below:

Eligibility Guidelines

The Research Development team reviews requests for support and prioritizes those grant projects that have the potential to substantially increase the Rutgers research portfolio or enhance the research infrastructure. Generally, RD-supported projects involve multidisciplinary teams and have funding limits in excess of $750,000 in direct costs per year.

Examples of Types of Support Provided:

  • Collaboration building including engaging support from within the institution as well as externally, developing letters of support and MOUs, and building internal consensus;

  • Project Management including kickoff meeting, RFP technical assistance, developing a timeline with deliverables, convening weekly meetings, and monitoring progress;  

  • Development of Institutional Sections of Proposals;

  • Budget Development and Consensus;

  • Collection of Biosketches and other needed attachments;

  • Liaise with ORED Senior Leadership on project needs and deliverables;

  • Formatting/Style - Provide basic style guidelines for the creation of all portions of the proposal, including citation methods, formatting and paginating as well as creating table of contents.


Because these are large-scale grants that typically require a great deal of planning, a timeline of 4-6 months is recommended, as this will also allow time for additional internal/external review prior to submission.
