Aim Higher

The Division of Research invites you to view the website, The Grant Life Cycle, that aims to assist Wayne State University faculty and administrators navigate through the six steps that make up the grant process:

  • Generating your idea
  • Finding funding
  • Developing your proposal
  • Submitting your proposal
  • Awaiting and responding to the decision
  • Managing your award

This user-friendly website offers guidance and tips as well as step-by-step tutorial videos on how to develop a proposal on our new electronic proposal development and submission program, E-prop (COEUSLite), use our new grants program, Researcher's Dashboard, and more.

We invite you to visit this site often at http://spa.wayne.edu/grant/ to guide you through the grant life cycle process at Wayne State University!

The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to host the next Advanced Instrumentation Summer 2014 Workshop on August 22, 2014 at 2:30 p.m. in the Engineering Building's Hall of Fame.  Dr. Mark Cheng, director of WSU's Nano Fabrication Core (nFab) and associate professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, will discuss the dual-beam focused ion beam system (FIB) that is available at nFab. The nFab is equipped with the state-of-the-art micro and nanofabrication equipment for thin film coating, device prototyping and material characterization. The addition of FIB enables nanoscale patterning, ion milling and deposition within 20nm resolution, depending on the process and materials.  This workshop will start with a presentation by Dr. Cheng followed by a tour of the facility. The presentation includes a brief introduction of the micro/nanotechnologies, cleanroom capabilities, and potential application of FIB.  Attendees are encouraged to bring samples to take high-resolution imaging using the FIB. The lecture and tour is open to all students, faculty and staff. Registration is required to attend this event.
