Request a Letter of Support


Grant proposals can be strengthened by a letter of support detailing relevant CCTS resources and services. While a letter of support can describe the general research environment at UIC, they are not a guarantee of the availability of specific services for your particular project. If you anticipate using specific CCTS service(s) to execute your research project, please contact the CCTS Navigator so that a specific plan can be developed for your project. Please note that the time required to develop this plan may vary based on the complexity of your project.

The CCTS has a standard process for issuing letters of support:

  1. Complete and submit the online form below. Investigators may attached a draft letter if they have created one.
  2. The Research Navigator will forward your request to the appropriate point person who will create or approve your letter of support.
  3. Please allow seven business days for letter processing. A PDF of your signed letter on CCTS letterhead will be emailed to the person you specify.

We are pleased to be able to support projects in this way, and look forward to opportunities to work together in the future!
