Proposal Review, Approval & Signature

All proposals must be reviewed and approved by the appropriate channels before being submitted to the funding source. This helps to ensure that the appropriate campus offices are aware of all grant activity.

Federal Grant Proposals

All federal grants must be reviewed and approved by Accounting and Budget Services. Stefanie Lund, senior accountant will coordinate the review and approval of federal grants and obtain the necessary signatures. Please allow 10 business days for the approval process. 

Private Funding Source Proposals

To help ensure the strongest possibilities for successful grantseeking for faculty, students, and staff, it is important that you communicate with Corporate and Foundation Relations (CFR) before applying for any grants. CFR is in constant contact with private funding agencies and is planning strategic requests to support a variety of campus initiatives.

In accordance with the grants policy, every proposal from faculty, students, and staff to a private funding source must be reviewed and approved by CFR, before submission to the grantmaking agency. CFR will coordinate review and approval of private grants and obtain the necessary signatures.

Grants constitute a contract between the university and the funding agency. It is important that all grants receive prior approval as noted above.

Please allow 10 business days for the approval process. Proposals that do not allow sufficient review and approval time may not be accepted.
