Office of Research & Scholarship

The College of Nursing Office of Research & Scholarship provides support to graduate students and faculty in securing extramural support for their scholarly, research, teaching, and community service activities.

In addition, the Office of Research & Scholarship will help with all aspects of proposal development and submission including concept development, proposal writing and review, and budget development. Many offices and service groups within the college support researchers with the numerous aspects of preparing a fundable proposal.
