Grants Process

Note: All grant activity must be coordinated through the Office of University Relations. Please contact Jane Kenyon at 253.879.3610 with questions about the grants process.

Before beginning any grant activity, please review the university’s policies and procedures for grant seeking.

Next, communicate your intentions about applying for a grant to your department chair or department head.

Then, complete and submit the grant notification form for review by the Office of University Relations, the Associate Academic Dean, and Accounting and Budget Services. 

It is the university’s policy that any grant activity that has not received prior review by the Office of University Relations, the Associate Academic Dean, and Accounting and Budget Services will not be approved for submission to the funding agency. This will help ensure that the university does not submit competing grant requests to the same agency during the same funding cycle, and will create a streamlined process across the university, increasing your chances for grant funding success.

Once you have completed the grant application, please follow the steps for proposal review, approval, and signature before sending your proposal. 

All grant proposals must be approved before being sent to funding agencies.
