Research Development, in close collaboration with the Sponsored Programs Office, supports Michigan Tech's growth as a premier technological research university by providing faculty, staff, and students the resources to search and analyze relevant funding opportunities; develop competitive proposals and prepare accurate budget justifications; and evaluate reviewer feedback and plan for resubmission.
