The Special Opportunity Project (SOP) Grant is open to all faculty and staff from the Smathers Libraries. This program has been designed to provide a supportive environment for those who wish to gain experience conceptualizing, writing, and administering grant projects. Successful grant projects are competitively selected and are funded and administered by the University of Florida Libraries Grant Management Committee. The SOP is intended to replicate, as much as possible, the process of writing and submitting grant proposals to external funding agencies.
