Proposal Support Programs

The External Draft Improvement Team (EDIT) program is an in-house peer review program for external grant proposal drafts offered by the Office of Research and Innovation and Grants Resources & Services. Interested faculty may choose to submit a draft of their external grant proposal to GRS and select a disciplinary review panel (STEM, Arts/Humanities, Social Sciences/Education, Health, or Fulbright), and GRS will recruit three area faculty reviews to provide detailed feedback on your grant proposal prior to submission. Draft proposals must be received a minimum of four weeks before the sponsor deadline to be considered for review.

The PREParation for Appalachian Research Experiences (PREPARE) programs is a customized research mentoring program for research-interested junior faculty at Appalachian State University.  Each cohort is introduced to a mentor network which assists these individuals with establishing a realistic research agenda, improving grantsmanship skills, seeking appropriate external funding source, and promoting compliance with internal and external protocols in an effort to increase successful grant submissions.
