OARS offers grant editing and proofreading assistance to all faculty and staff on an as-available basis, and — with sufficient notice — grant writing assistance for large, programmatic grants. In addition, OARS recommends the following grant writing resources:
Art of Writing Proposals, the Social Science Research Council
A Guide to Proposal Writing, NSF Division of Undergraduate Education
Online Proposal Writing Short Course, the Foundation Center
Proposal Writer's Guide, by Don Thackery, University of Michigan Office of Research & Sponsored Projects

Print copies of OARS' Guide to Proposal Development are available in the OARS office or from any OARS staffer.
OARS periodically leads or hosts agency- or topic-specific and general grant writing workshops. Availability of workshops is announced in the "News and events" widget on the OARS homepage, and often via the AllFac listserv as well.
