The Office of Proposal Development partners with faculty, staff and administrators to develop competitive external grant proposals. Our team of proposal development professionals enhances overall proposal quality by ensuring applicants meet sponsor guidelines and by improving the content, organization and visual appeal of proposal packages. Since 2005, we have helped UNL investigators secure more than $373 million in grant funding from a wide range of federal agencies and private foundations.
