Resources for Grants and Research
The Office of Research offers intramural funding programs for students, tenured and tenure-track faculty.
There are many ways to fund different types of research and scholarly pursuits within the University.
From original idea to actual submission, creating and writing a project proposal involves an intricate process requiring perseverance, organizational and time management skills; interpersonal negotiation and communication skills; the ability to accept feedback, often in the form of criticism; and the ability to handle rejection, make corrections and adjustments, and submit again.
Proposal Submission Process
Proposals for external funding are submitted by the Old Dominion University Research Foundation on behalf of the University.
