External Grant Proposal Process

  1. Contact the Office of Academic Grants & Foundation Relations (AGFR) to discuss your idea and potential funders.
  2. Once an idea and potential funder have been identified, complete the Preliminary Inquiry Form on GrantPro.
  3. When you submit the form electronically, it will be routed to your department chair for notification/approval.  You will be notified via e-mail when the form has been approved by the chair and forwarded to AGFR.
  4. The form will then be routed to the appropriate Vice President(s), and you will be notified by e-mail when it's been approved.
  5. Submit the proposal to AGFR for review and/or submission. 
  6. Some funding agencies (mostly Federal) will require you to submit the final proposal with AGFR signoff.  All others should be submitted by AGFR.
