Unsure about the difference between gifts, grants, and contracts? This section provides University guidance and policies regarding gifts, sponsored projects, and grants. For information on research as a "gift" or a "sponsored project," please see:
- University Policy

Want help with your Specific Aims for proposals? The Gillings Research Solutions unit offers scientific review of Specific Aims for proposal to any major granting agency on a regular cycle.
We have compiled resources to help you prepare a variety of funding proposals. The resources provide general language that describes the research environment at UNC and Gillings, including research resources, diversity initiatives, and general information about the university. Modify these to fit the needs of your specific proposal.
