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.

Other Campus Offices Supporting Grant Writing and Submission

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.

The Office of Sponsored Projects (OSP) serves as a central resource to support the research enterprise at Dartmouth by providing guidance and stewardship for the research community and the College. 

GrantGPS, funded by the Offices of the President and the Provost, and directed by Dean Madden, PhD, Vice Provost for Research, aims to help you navigate the grant writing experience.
