Faculty Grant Support


IRiSS provides support to faculty members seeking to obtain or who have already secured a grant. We work together with the faculty and the university’s administrative units to assist with grant management, including grants from the National Science Foundation.  Please direct questions to IRiSS Executive Director Chris Thomsen

Proposal Development

In coordination with faculty, IRiSS can assist in the development of large-scale grant proposals in the following ways:

  • Facilitating funding opportunity searches
  • Proposal drafting and editing assistance
  • Negotiating award and sub-award issues
  • Preparing grant budgets

Data Best Practices and Case Studies

Stanford Libraries maintain a helpful introduction to data best practices.

Grant Management

Once faculty members have been awarded a grant, IRiSS can also assist in managing the grant by helping to:


  • write reports
  • ensure the project follows the timeline
  • request any necessary changes
