Applying for Grants

The ORSP is available to assist faculty with all steps necessary to prepare and submit a grant application.

Grant Writing

The ORSP offers guidance on proposal development. We suggest that you begin the grant-writing process early in order to prepare a compelling application and strong supporting materials.

Government agencies typically provide detailed instructions for prospective grant applicants. Additionally, a number of online resources provide general information on writing effective grant proposals.

For additional information on proposal development, please contact Nancy Dufau.

Grant Routing

Any proposal that will result in a grant to Loyola must be routed before it is submitted to a government agency. This includes foundation or other proposals that include faculty time or resource commitments made on behalf of the University.
