Pre-Award and Fellowship Support
Research Management Services (RMS) provides support by finalizing budgets and required documents for proposal submission according to agency guidelines. If you plan to submit solicited federal, state, and private grants the Research Servicies Coordinator (RSC) must be notified at least 30 days in advance. For larger proposals, including those with subcontracts and international components, at least 60 days notice are required. Complex proposals including institutional training grants and cooperative agreements require 4-6 months notification to the RSC. After notification, a submission timeline will be established for submitting the proposal to ensure that the applicant meets the agency's deadline. All grants and fellowships require institutional signatures, and will be coordinated by the RSC. Final submission is performed by either the PI or RSC depending on the funding. If the PI submits, RSC is copied on the submission, and should the RSC submit, the PI and Department will be notified within 24 hours. If you have questions, please contact your Research Services Coordinator.
