The Science House serves faculty members and students by providing information and assistance in seeking grant funds or projects that require a broader impact, such as education and outreach. We can provide specific terminology to use when writing a proposal, review and give feedback on a written proposal, find a specific audience for a project, write letters of support and/or acquire letters of support from expected participants, and help manage program administration, budgets and research outcomes assessments
Regardless of the type of grant, or research proposal you are submitting for funding, The Science House @ CMAST can help you find a program. We are eager to develop new programs based on your availability, interest, and budget.
