Welcome to the University Center for Proposal Development
We work closely with faculty, staff, and administration across colleges and campuses at Oklahoma State University to develop strong and competitive external funding proposals. An experienced grant writer is available to provide a wide range of pre-award services, advice, and information to strengthen and enhance proposal quality. Our office coordinates and advises on internal and external collaborations, disseminates information on institutional resources, ensures that proposals meet funding agency guidelines, and assists in the overall improvement of the content, organization, and visual appeal of proposal submissions.
University Research Services offices are on the second floor of Cordell North (north wing) on Hall of Fame Avenue between the OSU Power Plant and Boone Pickens Stadium. Hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
