In this economy, diminishing institutional resources affect the teaching and learning experience.
There is a desire to increase the University’s prestige while:
Decreasingdraw on endowment
Creating alternate source for institutional stipends
Freeing individual giving for specific programs
There is a need to adequately fund the University’s capital plan renewal.The need for external funding
Grant research can be done collaboratively with, or independent of OGSP.
Here are some examples of on-line sources:
Foundation Search www.foundationsearch.com
Grants.gov http://www.grants.gov/Researching the funders
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!budget
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
