Grant Support

Grant management is complicated. ISSR is here to help.

Social science faculty interested in sponsored research can request free assistance in completing applications for grants, contracts, and fellowships; navigating submission processes with the University and sponsoring organizations; award set-up; and managing post-award activities.

Important Information

To receive ISSR support for your proposal submission, notify us at least one month in advance of the sponsor deadline to allow time for preparation, determination of submission timeline, review, and coordination with internal and online application systems.  

Our staff manages proposal submission from faculty and graduate students across the social sciences, and proposals brought to our attention later than that will be handled as time constraints allow.
