Office of Research Support
The MSU AgBioResearch Office of Research Support (ABR.ORS) works in conjunction with faculty and their department research administrators to provide pre-award services in support of extramural grant proposal submissions. A request for ABR.ORS services is to be made jointly by the faculty member serving as the Principal Investigator (PI) and his or her departmental support staff. To request ABR.ORS services, a Proposal Request Form must be completed and submitted.
ABR.ORS prioritizes its services to assist with proposals for federal grants, large funding requests, multidisciplinary proposals and proposals involving multiple institutions. It will also prioritize support to new assistant professors (defined as their first three years at MSU).
At this time, ABR.ORS is unable to provide direct support to graduate students and postdoctoral students seeking fellowship support. These proposals should be addressed at the department level.
