Welcome to the Office of Research Development (ORD)

Established to increase external funding for Cal State Fullerton's Mission and Goals-related institutional initiatives and partnerships, ORD provides assistance, guidance and consultation to the campus community in developing high-quality, competitive proposals — from concept to proposal submission.

ORD identifies and provides support to such current and potential "hot topic" areas as sustainability/energy, labor and aging — where there have been increases in federal grant funding and/or additional funding is anticipated. ORD also tracks other funding opportunities through agencies and programs the university has traditionally not pursued, and assists in strategically positioning university programs and collaborative efforts for successful funding and institutionalization.

We hope that, through this site, you will find the resources you need to successfully prepare a strong and fundable proposal. Feel free to contact us for additional assistance or consultation.
