Proposal Editing Services
Proposal development supports proposals with a team of staff and graduate student technical editors for individual or interdisciplinary proposals. This service is geared towards non-native English speakers.
Eligibility for Support
Faculty members, Research Scientists, and Postdocs who are seeking editing and proofreading on sponsored research proposals (grants) are eligible. This service is offered on a first-come, first-served basis and is subject to the editing team’s availability.
For assistance developing proposals for philanthropic organizations, please contact the Corporate and Foundation Relations team in the Division of Advancement.
What’s Included in the Editing

increase the resolution and clarity of images and tables
The Research Development department provides graphic upgrade services for infographics, tables, and charts in faculty proposals. Faculty are invited to send a completed graphic/mockup with guidance on the desired look of the final project. We will upgrade that graphic using professional graphic software such as Photoshop, Illustrator, or Canva; however, we cannot create graphics from scratch, only upgrade existing ones. Additionally, we do not offer 3-D modeling services or use software such as SOLIDWORKS or AutoCAD. See examples of the sorts of graphics we can create below.
