New Grant Development Specialist Supports Faculty

by Jacqueline Wilvers - Grant Development Specialist - April 2015

Joining the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs team at this time is a tremendous opportunity, especially as the department continues to reorganize in response to the valuable input from the campus community.

My role is new to the university and is designed specifically to support faculty and staff during the grant development process. This includes learning from faculty what research projects they are interested in and identifying new grant opportunities for them. I am also available to help faculty when they are writing the proposal narrative. This might include help with preparing the institutional narrative or editing for alignment with proposal guidelines. For newer faculty my focus is to provide training that increases their knowledge of the grants process, as well as fully support their pursuit of grant funding.

I am excited to be a part of the CSULB family. I graduated from this institution with a bachelorís degree (Journalism) and two masterís degrees (Theater Arts and Public Policy & Administration), so I am a committed 49er. My grant experience has been in the California community college system, an environment which mirrors the barriers to success that students face at a university, especially students from disadvantaged backgrounds. I have collaborated on grant projects both large and small. There is no question that institutional grants accomplish great things for the campus community; however, the smaller projects have a significant impact on faculty research and the students these faculty serve, as well. I enjoy being a part of them all.

We are focused on increasing the number of faculty involved in submitting grants, so please get in touch with me even if the idea is not fully formulated. We can work together to find the right funding opportunity to get the project off the ground. Please give me a call at (562) 985-1065 or email me at
