The Cancer Research Institute curates a repository of boilerplate text about shared facilities that faculty can use for their grant proposals.
California Grants Portal
The California Grants Portal is a single website to find all grant opportunities that are offered on a first-come or competitive basis by California state agencies. You can search for grants based on applicant type, grant category, and application deadline and receive email updates when there are new grant opportunities in a specific category. Grants are automatically added to the website when a state agency registers a new opportunity before the solicitation process starts.
Biosketch Guide Using SciENcv
NSF applicants are encouraged to create their biosketch via a web tool called SciENcv. The following is a comprehensive guide to using SciENcv from UCI Libraries: https://guides.lib.uci.edu/sciENcv-for-biosketch. NIH applicants may also use SciENcv.
Pre-review of Grant Proposals
A faculty member with the School of Biological Sciences can request subjecting their grant proposal to peer review before submitting it to an external funding body. Contact Research Development staff to learn about this peer review process.
Team Scholarship Acceleration Lab
Many challenges in scholarship require assembling teams, either large or small, to take them on. But effective team scholarship can be a challenge to create. This team science site offers a guide to making such efforts more successful.
Research Bulletin is a curated list of resources and announcements that BioSci faculty may find useful to advance their research programs. Research Administration and Development and Marketing and Communications gather these resources and announcements from federal sponsors and through UCI community tips. They are then shared in a regular email bulletin. Because they are hand-picked, the resources and announcements are tailored for faculty and researchers in BioSci. To subscribe, sign up here. Submit details about seminars and other research-related events on campus here. Submit funding opportunity announcements here.
The School of Biological Sciences provides statistical consulting and reviews.
Help with grant development
UCI has various entities that help with research development and submission of grants.
Finding funding opportunities
Information about funding opportunity announcements (FOAs) are available at several locations.
UCI Review posts details about limited competitions for funding opportunities that place a cap on the number of proposals submitted by UCI.
