Funding Research


Glossary of Terms
This section of the OSP web site will assist University faculty and staff in seeking proposal funding: designing competitive proposals; and obtaining University review and approval for submitting proposals to external sponsors for funding consideration.

Several grant writing resources are located in the Grant Writing Resource Guide. Websites for state, federal and private sponsors are listed for review. Troy faculty and staff are encouraged to search for funding opportunities through the American Association of State Colleges and Universities or AASCU for short, Grant Resource Center or GRC for short, and Grant$earch database. Access to the database is restricted to Troy faculty and staff. Faculty and staff should contact the Office of Sponsored Programs to obtain access to this database.

Faculty and staff who have selected a sponsor and are in the writing process are encouraged to review the Proposal Development Overview prior to proposal development. OSP staff can assist in budget development; assurance questions; proposal development; administrative review and approval; and the copying and mailing of proposals (Note: OSP must receive the proposal seven days prior to deadline for this service).
