A part of the Provost’s Initiative to Enhance Research and Scholarship (PIERS), the Leveraged Proposal Organization and Development (L-POD) Program is a new group within the Office of the Vice Provost for Research that will serve the Vanderbilt Research Community.  The goal of L-POD is to foster research development across campus and to strengthen relationships with extramural sponsors.  L-POD will promote this goal through two key services:

  1. InReach and OutReach Workshops to promote VU-to-Sponsor Connections
  2. Strategic Proposal Planning and Coordination to support development of large-scale and/or prestigious proposal submissions to Federal sponsors
