EAU CLAIRE — Jeremy Miner is the new director of grants and contracts in the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.

"We are thrilled to have Jeremy and his expertise in the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs," said Karen Havholm, assistant vice chancellor for research and director of the Center for Excellence for Faculty/Student Research Collaboration. "He is an analytic and strategic thinker who can help enhance the national reputation of UW-Eau Claire."

Miner comes to UW-Eau Claire with significant grants experience in academic and healthcare environments. He also is president of Miner and Associates Inc., a nationwide grants consulting firm that has trained more than 10,000 successful grant seekers.

"UW-Eau Claire has so many talented faculty and dedicated staff who are committed to personalizing students' learning experiences," Miner said. "I look forward to working with them to secure extramural funding for a variety of excellent curricular and co-curricular activities."

ORSP provides assistance to faculty and staff at all steps in the funding process, from finding opportunities and facilitating pre-proposal contacts, to reviewing proposal drafts and developing budgets, to coordinating the administrative review process and submitting proposals.

As director of grants and contracts, Miner will be the primary contact at UW-Eau Claire for all extramural proposals, Havholm said, noting that faculty and staff are encouraged to contact ORSP early in their funding process to receive comprehensive support.

In addition to developing and administering proposals to public and private grant makers, Miner has served as a reviewer for federal grant programs and has helped private foundations streamline their grant applications.

"Grant-funded projects cultivate a heightened spirit of discovery, foster collaborative research and creative endeavors, strengthen a community of scholars, enrich educational experiences and learning environments, and advance the university's mission" Miner said.

Miner also co-authored "Proposal Planning & Writing," a leading grant reference guidebook, and an advanced companion text, "Models of Proposal Planning & Writing." His successful grant writing techniques have generated millions of grant dollars for many nonprofit education, healthcare and social service agencies.

ORSP's mission is to serve faculty, staff and students in the pursuit of research and scholarly and creative endeavors. It administers internally funded research and professional development programs, directs the Center of Excellence for Faculty and Undergraduate Student Research Collaboration, and facilitates proposal preparation and submission to extramural sponsors.

Miner earned a bachelor's degree in mathematics from Marquette University in Milwaukee, and a master's degree in rhetoric and scientific and technical communications from the University of Minnesota.
