Grant-Writing Enhancement Program

The Grant Writing Enhancement Program (GEP) is a professional development experience of direct individual and group support for faculty and administrators, regardless of their level of grant writing experience. 

The goals of the Grant Writing Enhancement Program include:

  1. Prepare scholars to be leaders in their fields. 
  2. Strengthen a culture across campus of expectations, opportunity, and rewards for faculty engagement in sponsored programs. 
  3. Increase the number of faculty and administrators successfully engaged in grant writing at MTSU.
  4. Increase the number and dollar value of externally funded projects, programs, and centers across the university. 

To meet these goals, the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs has developed a 3-year curriculum consisting of the following components:  professional development, grant writing, and award management.  Visit the GEP Curriculum page for detailed activities pertaining to each phase of the program.  

We invite you to watch the below video during which Dr. David Butler, Vice Provost for Research, shares his vision for the Grant Writing Enhancement program.
