About OIRC

The Office of International Research Collaboration makes preparing grant proposals easier for MSU faculty. Specializing in international, multi-disciplinary proposals, we find funding opportunities, improve your proposal’s content and quality, and connect you to collaborators and donors.


OIRC provides:

  • Full-service proposal development. OIRC services are comprehensive; we can handle any aspect of the administrative preparation of your proposal and help coordinate your team.
  • Strong international funding knowledge. OIRC can offer market intelligence by understanding the funding landscape and donor requirements and expectations; we know what it takes to win grants.
  • Connections. OIRC can connect you to opportunities, donors, and collaborators from across campus or around the world.
  • Budgeting. OIRC creates proposal budgets and coordinates submission to the MSU Office of Sponsored Programs.
  • Free services. OIRC is university-sponsored, serving all MSU colleges and departments. We don’t charge any fees to work on your proposal.
