Writing and Editorial Assistance

Research Development offers editing assistance for faculty submitting proposals for external funding. Our editing focuses on helping faculty make their proposals more competitive and focused on funder priorities.


  • Determine eligibility and alignment of the project to the funder goals
  • Assist in research concept development to improve the competitiveness of the proposal
  • Develop Broader Impact or science outreach activities through established community and school partnerships
  • Editing a proposal for alignment to grant requirements and proofreading for grammatical, punctuation, and other errors


All full-time Baylor faculty members may request assistance at any time.

Faculty members who have identified a target funding opportunity for which they plan to apply are encouraged to request assistance in a reasonable time period prior to the sponsor's due date for the target funding opportunity.
