The Office of Research Development (ORD) maintains an institutional subscription to Hanover Research to help faculty navigate the grantseeking landscape. Our subscription includes access to the resources below. 

Proposal Reviews by Grant Consultants

ORD can arrange a full review of proposal narratives by Hanover’s grant consultants. Feedback includes suggestions to improve proposal writing, alignment with funder priorities, and overall competitiveness. Space is limited, so please complete the proposal support form well in advance of a proposal deadline to arrange a Hanover review.

Hanover Grants Learning Center (GLC)

Faculty and staff may access the Hanover GLC for two self-guided virtual courses for step-by-step proposal development of 1) NSF CAREER and 2) NIH grants. Each course contains training modules designed to walk faculty through the various stages of developing competitive proposals. The GLC includes hands-on tutorials, recent Hanover webinars, examples of winning proposals, annotated applications, and insights from past reviewers and Program Officers. 
Please register to access the Grants Learning Center, using the referral code Rowdy.
