Please contact your designated grant facilitator or liaison. Once a grant opportunity has been identified, the PI/PD will need to provide the Office of Research & Grants with the Intent to Submit Worksheet. The worksheet needs to be submitted to our office at NUC 341 a minimum of 4 to 5 weeks prior to the submission deadline. Our office will send a copy to the Office of Grants & Contracts and will communicate with the grant facilitator or liaison to ensure all entities are aware of the upcoming submission. The worksheet is essential to ensure the PI/PD receives assistance throughout the grants process.
The worksheet must be signed by the PI/PD, Department Chair/Supervisor, Dean/Director, and Vice President if PI/PD is not within Academic Affairs.
One month prior to the deadline, PI/PD completes and routes Intent to Submit Worksheet.
Once the proposal is close to being finalized, PI/PD should complete an External Grant Proposal Routing Form. The process for approval of a proposal can take up to a week and a half (1 ½ weeks).
Please contact the Office of Research & Grants (email@example.com) and provide us with a copy of the award letter. We will inform the Office of Grants & Contracts so that they can begin setting up the grant account.
Please contact the Office of Research & Grants (firstname.lastname@example.org) and provide us with the notification letter. Our office recommends that the PI/PD solicit the reviewer comments from the agency. The comments can be incorporated into the proposal and be resubmitted to the agency at the upcoming deadline. If the PI/PD does not want to resubmit to the agency, a new funding opportunity can be identified at that point.
Our office encourages resubmitting the proposal with the additions based on the reviewers comments as these will make the proposal more competitive. Securing a grant is a competitive process and it might take a few submissions to secure one.
