Amy Wright and the pre-awards center

Amy Wright and the pre-awards center: Amy Wright and her pre-awards staff support the colleges of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine faculty in grant submissions. They work with faculty to make sure that they have met all the criteria for their grants, help them prepare budgets and prepare the document package, read it over and then submit it to the funding agency. They go above and beyond the call of duty as they often work tirelessly late into the evening to make sure that the grants are submitted on time and meet all the criteria that are essential for the grant to be accepted by the funding agency. They do this over and over, often submitting almost 100 grants per month to many different funding agencies. Their service is second to none. They are unsung heroes for their efforts on behalf of the faculty. -- Karen Plaut (College of Agriculture)
