budget

How do I prepare a budget?

The budget should show what funds are needed to carry out the proposed project.

The budgeting process usually takes place between OGSP and the Principal Investigator.

Developing a budget often takes longer and requires more thought than anticipated.

Time spent during the proposal stage saves a lot of time and energy down the road!

timeline

What’s the timeline for proposal submission?

The PI’s and Department Chair’s work should be done two weeks prior to a deadline.

This allows for the signature process, editing the narrative, adjusting budgets, compiling attachments and copies, etc.

Plan on three to five days in OGSP and a similar period in offices of the Dean of Faculty and the Vice President of Academic Affairs.

Timeline

What’s the timeline for proposal submission?

Some funders encourage proposals well ahead of due date.

Try to avoid last-minute submissions.

Timeline
post award reporting to funders

What happens after I am awarded?

This is a very important, but often overlooked stage of grants management.

It could affect future grants from the funder.

It’s just as important to meet the reporting deadlines as it is to meet the submission deadlines.

Post-award: reporting to funders
