The Grant Development Support Unit (GDSU) is a part of the CFAES Office for Research and Graduate Education. Our mission is to serve CFAES employees as they conceptualize, develop, write, and submit their proposals to federal agencies and other entities to seek funding. We work across all disciplines with the goal of making the proposal development process as straightforward and streamlined as possible.

We are available to assist you with proposal development and submission and/or answer grant related questions. We have offices on both the Wooster and Columbus campuses. Please stop by or contact us to see how we can help you submit a successful proposal!
