Research Services

The UNC Institute for the Environment (IE) offers a variety of services to principal investigators and their students, and to research associates. We provide support for proposal development and submission, including project budgeting. We also provide administration, including periodic reporting, for funded research projects. Our services and capabilities also include assistance with research dissemination. The links on this page describe these services, and provide additional information on the research proposal process as it is conducted at UNC-Chapel Hill.

The UNC Institute for the Environment also maintains related information, such as a listing of all of the University's environmental faculty.
