Proposals and Grants

The Proposals and Grants teams provide expert administrative support to all researchers from proposal through post proposal submission, award review and setup for all federal grants mechanisms and proposal through post proposal submission support for non-federal, non-profit funding opportunities.

The Grants Officer and Grants Specialist are the institutional representatives throughout the life of the grant award. During the proposal development process, award review and negotiation, the Grants Officer and/or Grants Specialists works closely with researchers, department and campus offices to ensure timely submission and award set up.
