    • Provide templates and examples of administrative sections (e.g., facilities, human subjects research, biosketches, etc.)
    • Coordinate with VPR, SRS, Dean’s Office, etc.
  • Grantsmanship Development
    • Onboarding of new research faculty with TAMU resources
    • Navigation of administrative structures and tools

Our Grant Priorities

  • Proposals ranging from small private foundation grants to large, complex, multi-investigator grant applications for federal agencies such as NIH, NSF, DofED, DoD, and other federal agencies.
  • Applications related to Dean’s and University initiatives
  • Junior faculty writing their first major research project grants, e.g. NIH R01 grants


REO has developed the Maximizing Investigator Networking Tools (MINT) program to help all our faculty in the adoption and utilization of the tools and resources needed to elevate their research profiles and prepare them for proposal submissions and scholarship.  The series is ever-evolving, and currently includes getting our researchers set up on the following:

  • Scholars@TAMU – the database of researchers at Texas A&M, which allows you to find collaborators, experts, and resources here at our institution, also syncs with ORCiD to send your publications information to Interfolio F-180.
  • ORCiD – create your online CV to sync and populate your biographical information in all other platforms
  • SciENcv – now required by NSF and highly encouraged by multiple other funders for the creation of Biosketch and other supporting documents for proposals
  • Pivot Funding Database – licensed through TAMU to help our researchers identify funding opportunities relevant to their research and needs
