Technical Assistance for Proposal Writing

Technical Writing Assistance for Proposal and Manuscript Preparation

Nevada's NSF EPSCoR Track-1 program provides funding to provide technical assistance for proposal and manuscript preparation for all NSHE faculty to promote competitive attainment of follow-on funding to current Track-1 research efforts. Please see for a description of Track-1 research areas.

Requests to provide assistance for preparation of proposals being submitted to all funding agencies will be considered, but priority will be given those being submitted to NSF. Priority also will be given to investigators without strong funding histories. These priorities do not mean that others cannot receive assistance.

Requests to provide assistance for preparation of manuscripts being submitted to all peer-reviewed journals will be considered, but priority will be given to those being submitted to journals that are prestigious within the topic area and command national attention. Assistance will not be provided for manuscripts being prepared for conference proceedings.

Any participant accepting assistance from the program agrees to provide evaluation information, which will be requested through surveys. Failure to respond to the surveys will result in the participant being ineligible for future services from the Technical Writers Assistance Program.
