Office of Grant and Research Development at Vancouver

The WSU Vancouver Office of Research and Graduate Education assists faculty and graduate students pursuing extramural funding to support their scholarly research, teaching, and community service activities. We work in cooperation with the WSU Office of Grant and Research Development to offer a broad system of support.

Budget
From salaries to petri dishes, we can help you cost out and justify your project budget.
