Working to advance international collaboration, and linking funding opportunities between UA researchers, international academic partners and industry, UA Global’s Grants.Global incorporates funding opportunity identification, team and resource mobilization, proposal development, writing, budget management, submission and reporting to ensure award-winning grant submissions.

Proposal Development

Grants.Global’s optimized project management approach accelerates proposal development and submission; we handle proposal assembly and submission, budgeting, reporting, as well as pre- and post-award management.

  • Does your research target international priority areas (developing world countries)?
  • Do you have questions about which federal and private grants support your research?
  • Are you looking for additional researchers to be part of your team?
  • Do you need editing and budgeting support?
