Tools and resources for proposal development created specificially for UNH by RD staff can be found in the Scholars' Repository: https://scholars.unh.edu/research/.

The Scholars’ Repository can be accessed directly on-campus (via an Ethernet connection or secure wireless) or remotely through the UNH VPN using the optional “All Traffic” configuration.  To add this configuration, follow the directions here: https://www.library.unh.edu/services/technical-support/using-unh-vpn
We recommend that you use a browser other than Internet Explorer, as IE users may encounter download problems.  If you continue to have difficulty accessing the resources through the Scholars’ Repository, please contact lynnette.hentges@unh.edu.
