Cost Structure

We strive to support research in any way we can. Fees for services are used to offset labor costs on your project. After an initial consultation regarding your project, we will provide you with a detailed estimate of services. If you are interested in seeking a grant to obtain these services, we will assist you in working with the Office of Research and Sponsored Projects to write these costs into the budget of your grant application.

We offer the following services:


  • Research Consultation
    Research Consultation

    We can help you design your project and determine your needs. We will also help you find other resources if needed or discuss the additional research services we can provide.

    What to Expect?

    During your consultation you can look forward to the following:

    • Define your topic
    • Identify and locate new sources
    • Organize your research
    • Offer other kinds of support tailored for your research needs
