Once you have identified a potential funder and are ready to begin a new proposal, follow these steps. The College of Arts & Sciences Office of Research (CAS OOR), in collaboration with the university’s Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP), is here to help. More proposal development resources can be found in OSP’s PI & Scholar Toolkit.
Be sure to read the call for proposals or funding announcement guidelines carefully to understand what is required and what activities or expenses may not be allowed. Our office can help review these guidelines. Depending on the funder/funding opportunity, your proposal may include some/all of the following:
Once you have prepared all proposal documents, including the budget, and uploaded those documents to Cayuse, then we will be ready to “route” the IPF. Please check with our office before routing. Our goal is to route the IPF at least 5 business days prior to the sponsor deadline. Even after the IPF is routed, there is still work to do.
Our office can assist with starting the proposal in the appropriate system. For NSF proposals, the preferred system is Research.gov. For NIH proposals, the preferred system is ASSIST. For most other federal grants, Grants.gov is used. Basic institutional information you may need for filling out applications:
Associate Dean for Research
