The focus of proposal support from the Outreach office involves development of Broader Impact (BI) statements and management of the programs and partnerships to facilitate their outcomes.

Support Resources

  • The National Alliance for Broader Impacts (NABI) guiding principles can help frame a solid approach to developing a well crafted BI statement.
  • The COSEE Broader Impact Wizard is a helpful online tool that can be used to satisfy NSF II criterion addressing specific areas throughout the creation of the BI statement, from audience identification through to evaluation. 
  • Logic models can enhance and clarify your proposal.

For more information, and to arrange a consultation to create and manage an effective BI statement, please email Amanda Skinner.

The Outreach office provides faculty with information regarding working with minors. This information is intended to support faculty in getting started with the paperwork and guidelines for working with minors, especially intended to ensure faculty have the time and resources needed to focus on the outreach activities. Starting documents include:

Other Campus Offices Supporting Grant Writing and Submission

Data Management and Support

Grant-writing training We organize workshops that provide training on specific grant mechanisms, including NIH and NSF research proposals, grant funding in the Humanities and Social Sciences, and more.
You can learn more at the GrantGPS website, or email them directly.

Librarians for Research Support
Every department on campus has a designated 
subject librarian available for specialized help and grant research support, including literature reviews and data management plans. Your librarian will help you develop your literature review, recommend specific resources and search strategies, and provide assistance on how to most effectively find, access, organize, and use information and research data.
The Library supports the grant writing process by providing extensive print and digital collections, in addition to expert assistance.

Grant Management
The Office of Sponsored Projects (OSP) serves as a central resource to support faculty in the grant process in pre- and post-award services.
They providing guidance and stewardship for the research community and the College. OSP is comprehensive in its scope and mission, handling both pre award and post award services.
The Office has primary responsibility for assuring Dartmouth's compliance with funding regulations, and assists the research community to facilitate the application and submission of proposals to external sponsors (Pre-Award Grants Officers), as well as the receipt, and management of awards (Post-Award Sponsored Research Managers).
