Proposal Resources


Sponsored Programs provides assistance to faculty and staff in preparing proposals through guideline interpretation, budget preparation, and adherence to university policies and federal regulations. As agencies issue new regulations or revise old ones, we keep the University community informed, monitoring the proposals for the required adjustments. When time permits, we can also review and edit proposal drafts. If you need access to NSF's Fastlane or the NIH Commons, Sponsored Programs can get you set up in those agencies' electronic systems.
