Special consulting services have been developed to assist MSU researchers with proposal preparation support. These services complement those offered by Research Facilitation & Dissemination and focus on specialized areas by funding entity such as NIH and NSF. Our grant consultants have worked with institutions across the country and have developed a set of best practices which they follow and share with MSU researchers. Read the Grant Submission Assistance Initiative for details on cost sharing for these programs.
