The ORFD is most helpful with collaborative grant proposals, but is willing to help on others. They can help with compiling proposal documents as well as the following:

  • Management Plans
  • Capacity Statement
  • Editing
  • Will look for data (about MSU, student populations etc.)

How it works:

  • Notify Lori Hudson as soon as you know you are going after a grant and she will assign it to Donna or Sohba. Send with the notice:
    • RFP
    • Name of PIs  (be sure to notify your PI/Is when you notify ORFD)
    • Proposal Due Date
  • ORFD grant writer will:  
    • create a task sheet with deadlines for application documents
    • meet weekly with the team
    • review/edit proposals if you wish (for grammar, etc., but also for substance)
    • complete the grants.gov application form and submit it to OSP
    • complete the documents for paper submissions and package the proposal for mailing
    • require documents in time to submit to OSP a week before their typical deadline
  • ORFD grant writer will not:
    • create biosketches
    • initiate the transmittal
    • develop the budget
    • write the budget justification
    • interact with OSP about the budget reviews, etc.
