Grant Proposal Incubator

Under development & Directed by Mike Copenhaver (PhD, Allied Health) & Blair Johnson (PhD, Psychological Sciences)

  • The Grant Proposal Incubator can be utilized at any stage of the grant writing process, from the formation of ideas to the polishing of completed proposals.
  • Your proposal’s “incubation” will consist of a thorough review of your ideas and materials by a panel of grant writing experts. Following this review, the group will convene to meet with you to give constructive and holistic feedback on proposal for which you are seeking funding.
