Small Grant for Preliminary Study (SGPS) An external grant application becomes more competitive by including “Preliminary Study” in the proposal. SGPS provides seed money to produce preliminary data for the feasibility study, proof-of-concept, etc. The goal of SGPS is to strengthen faculty's external grant applications and lead to securing funding from external sponsoring agencies.
