Research and Sponsored Programs (RSP) has contracted with Hanover Research to provide proposal development support for CSUN faculty. Hanover's grant professionals provide customized proposal review, revision, and production support, while also helping to align projects and strategic priorities to federal, state, and foundation funding opportunities.
Review and revision services are designed to ensure the strongest possible proposals are submitted. Prospecting, concept development, and competitiveness analysis services ensure projects are aligned with specific funding opportunities.
Services typically require between two and six weeks to complete. Projects recommended for Hanover services are placed in a queue. Selections are made based on current project volume, anticipated grant request ($), funding sponsor, and proposal submission deadline. To make the best use of this opportunity, RSP suggests faculty target high-risk/high return, reputation enhancing and/or large complex proposals for competitive funding opportunities.
