Conducting Funded Research


Pre-Award – Research Applications

The core grants programs unit in the Research Services Office (RSO) holds a hard 2 day internal deadline.  Please be aware that the closer you submit your application to the deadline, the less likely the Research Office is able to complete the signature process on your behalf.

When submitting research funding applications, please include a completed Research Funding Application Approvals form. The RFAA form is updated periodically, so we recommend downloading the newest version each time.

Post-Award - Project Set-up

Once a research grant has been awarded, or an industry contract has been signed, a Project Request Form will be required to create a new project.  Research accounting will process the PRF. Once it has been reviewed and approved, project holders will receive an email notification once the project set up is complete.
