Frequently Asked Questions


How to Submit a Grant

  1. OSP Services
    • Please contact an OSP representative for assistance with proposal development, including writing a budget justification, writing an institutional profile, writing a facilities, equipment, and other resources document. An OSP representative can also assist with copy editing a proposal and related documents. Please provide the proposal and documents one week in advance of proposal submission.
  2. Preparing for Submission
    • The Office of Sponsored Projects will review your budget and all submission guidelines. Your OSP representative will coordinate a time to submit your proposal. If your proposal will be submitted through, OSP will submit it. If not, OSP needs to review and approve your proposal before submission. A Principal Investigator (PI) can submit proposals via email but need OSP approval before submission. OSP should be copied on the email submission and listed as the contracting authority.
  3. Approval
    • Before proposal submission, a proposal approval form will be sent to the PI, Department Chair (or equivalent), and Dean (or equivalent). All parties must sign the form, officially approving the proposal for submission.
