Applying for a Grant/Contract

Applying Basics - Early Notification

Those who wish to apply for grant funding should consult with the chairperson of their Department and the Dean of the School (or appropriate Vice President) and University Research Services before beginning the process of preparing a grant proposal. In addition, if applying for funding from a government agency, it is highly recommended that you consult the appropriate program officer within the agency before the writing process begins. The URS Office can help you with both learning about the funding source and preparing a narrative in the appropriate form.
