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 $564 million in grant funding from a wide range of federal agencies and private foundations.

"Because of OPD’s services, working on a proposal is a more creative process."
"When you contact them, you feel like you're asking for help from friends."
"They make it possible and manageable to put together grants and get them funded."
"OPD’s work has helped my individual efforts and those of the entire center."
"What UNL has to offer is far superior to what other institutions have."
