The purpose of the Office for Proposal Development (OPD) is to cultivate and sustain a research culture at The University of Alabama that informs and improves our research practices; focuses on the production of high quality research proposals that meet the needs of the campus, community, state and beyond; and strengthen collaborations amongst UA faculty that will help build multi-disciplinary research expertise, and improve the reputation of UA nationally.
The Office for Proposal Development is committed to enhancing our research endeavors and seeks to enrich the University’s mission to further productivity and innovation in research. The OPD provides a variety of resources to all levels of research faculty seeking support with grant proposals.
Our office works closely with the Office for Research Development (ORD). The ORD assists faculty with locating funding opportunities, limited submissions, internal funding programs, workshops and networking sessions.
