Preaward Proposal Development & Submission


All externally sponsored research grant proposals must be processed through the Office of Research and Graduate Studies (ORGS). The Principal Investigator is responsible for submitting the Internal Clearance Form and the complete Grant Application Package (this includes the technical proposal, budget proposal and any additional documents required by the sponsor).

The Grant Application Package should be submitted to ORGS no later than three business days prior to submission. A timely approval and submission of the proposal depends on the completeness of the Grant Application Package and the Internal Clearance Form.
