Grant Facilitation at UBC & Beyond

Share. Learn. Perform.


If you are a grant facilitator or are otherwise involved in the grants process, this website is meant for you. This site will help you through the planning, preparation and submission of grants.

The goals of this site are to:

  • develop resources to help new facilitators become oriented to the grant facilitation role
  • provide templates and tools for all stages of the grant facilitation process
  • teach facilitators how they can harness technology to stay informed on funding opportunities and agency news
  • provide resources for facilitators to develop their administrative and project management skills
  • create a virtual network and a sense of community among grant facilitators

This site was created by a small team of grant facilitators at the University of British Columbia (UBC) dedicated to the research enterprise who recognized a need for a comprehensive, centralized information source for grant writing. We hope that facilitators outside the UBC community will also find this website useful, and we invite all grant facilitators, regardless of affiliation or geographical location, to help us make the website content applicable to as wide an audience as possible through participation and feedback.
