Infrastructure Descriptions

Proposals may require descriptions of facilities, infrastructure and resources that will support your research project. Highlighting the availability and use of these resources can make your research proposal more competitive.

The Research Enhancement Unit can provide descriptive documents or help you locate information that may be useful to you as you develop your proposal. The documents and links below outline the unique qualities of university campuses, buildings, centers and research infrastructure. Many provide language and details that can be adapted for use in proposals submitted to external sponsors.
