Develop Your Proposal

Gears with emoticons

Investigators at UIC submit proposals to many types of sponsors in all fields of research every year. Research Development wants to see each and every one of these projects funded.

We now offer proposal development support through Hanover Research. Read more about this service and request support here.

UIC’s research portfolio spans topics representing the entire campus. The information compiled here focuses on NIH and NSF because most of our proposals are submitted to those agencies, but we are happy to answer questions you might have about other sponsors. In addition, the Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations is available to support applications to non-federal sponsors and the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) has many resources available for developing administrative components of all proposals, including budget templates, standard institutional information, and and electronic submission portal access.
