Research and Grant Development


Research and Grant Development serves USC faculty and staff seeking support, available resources, and guidance during the pursuit of external funding.

Our hands-on approach with Collaborative Proposals has set USC researchers apart; over $400 million in proposals to the NIH, NSF, DOE, USDA and private foundations have been submitted with the help of the Research Development Team.

Our GRANT Training program, developed to meet the research administration needs of the University faculty and staff, is highly acclaimed and serves as a model for other institutions of higher education across the country. Faculty education, staff training, a certificate program, and E-learning Courses offered throughout the year keep up with ongoing changes in research administration.

Funding opportunities are easier to locate with our one-stop approach to browsing databases for funding, limited submissions, and collaborative partners at USC and other universities. As a Community of Science (COS) subscriber, we educate faculty on how to search for research collaborators campus wide as well as globally.

Numerous Resources are readily available to make the proposal development process as efficient as possible, including a database to help users quickly locate highly specialized resources, equipment and facilities already available at USC.
