A grant resource for STEM Faculty

Grant Support Services

The Center for Advanced STEM Education offers resources and support for faculty grant initiatives. Here are a few...


Faculty Grant Support Program

Promoting a culture of grant writing activities

The goal of the faculty grant support program is to promote and develop a culture of grant activity. Program awards are meant to increase grant seeking and writing efforts by faculty, particularly for cross-disciplinary or multi-institutional grants.  This program is intended to facilitate those grant writing activities through the provision of financial and administrative support.   

A faculty member or team can request a budget (up to $5000) to support their grant writing activities in any number of ways, including but not limited to:

1. Request salary supplement during the summer term

2. Request travel support to meet with Program Officers (once travel restrictions are lifted)

3. Request purchase of research equipment and supplies that support seeking research grant funding

4. Request registration fee for attending a grant-writing workshop

Eligibility:  Category I faculty are eligible to apply and should be the primary requester for cross-disciplinary applications. One application per collaborative funding request. Priority will be given to grant activities that cross-disciplinary or college boundaries. Funding will be split between the faculty pursuing the grant or research. Example: Grant application that requires STEM and education components.

Application DeadlineSummer 2021 applications are due by January 22, 2021. Awards are limited. Notification of award will be provided by February 5, 2021. 

Questions and feedback on the faculty grant program are encouraged. Please contact Dr. Hsiu-Ping Liu at hliu1@msudenver.edu or Linda Sivertson at lsivert1@msudenver.edu

STEM Grant Consortium

A STEM forum for those involved in all aspects of the grant process

A hands-on community forum for all those involved in seeking, submitting, and facilitating grants in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and cross-disciplinary STEM. Join your fellow STEM PIs, Co-PIs, and peers as part of a grant resource consortium.

This grant support group will offer regular digital communication and gather in person as needed to share information pertinent to the grant process. The group is here for you to share resources, collaborate, and assist each other with various aspects of grant submission and facilitation.

Some areas of support:

  • Data collection and sharing
  • Maintain a collective literature review
  • Updated facilities/resources lists
  • Knowledge of other related grants that can serve as resources
  • Sample IRBs
  • Internal review, proofreading and copy-editing
  • Opportunities for publications & conference presentations
  • Cross-college and cross-discipline collaborations
  • RFP and proposal alignment            

Contact Linda Sivertson at lsivert1@msudenver.edu to be added to the email list.


Grant Liaison

Individualized support for faculty grant initiatives

The grant liaison provides pre- and post-grant proposal support to further the initiatives of faculty who seek grant funding for their areas of expertise and research. Identified as a need by the Dean, the liaison will specifically assist faculty seeking grants and those looking for cross-disciplinary grant opportunities. As each grant has its own unique parameters, assistance will be adapted to the needs of each grant initiative.
