Research Council Members

The Research Council is an ad-hoc group made up of active researchers and/or scholars on campus that provide input and direction to the Sponsored Research Office (SRO). The Research Council would help to represent the interests and issues of researchers as they come up. This includes assistance in prioritizing what should be included in additional grant support funding.

proposal development1
Proposal Development


  • What will happen after the funding ends?
  • List matching funds, in-kind, revenue, etc.


  • How will you distribute results? Think usual (papers, posters, web, etc.) and innovative. Funders like to be acknowledged.

Proposal Development


  • Never submit the day grants are due. Murphy’s Law is always in effect.
  • If pasting responses into an online submission form (common with corporate foundations), pay attention to character limits and whether they include spaces.
post award
  • Celebrate!
  • Budget negotiation sometimes involved
  • PI/institution sign grant award
  • Hold a post-award meeting with team: key staff, accounting, and evaluation
  • Be cognizant of reporting dates

  • Read the reviews carefully, if provided, and ask colleagues to do the same.
  • Discuss reviews with program officer.
  • Address reviews within resubmission.
