Grant Proposal Checklist


Are you eligible to be a Principal Investigator (PI)? See the PI Eligibility and PI Waiver Guidelines

The roles of Principal Investigators (PIs) at Stanford include the direction of research and scholarship and the education and training of students. Sponsored projects must be conducted in compliance with University policy reflecting laws, regulations and sponsor requirements. The PI assures Stanford and the potential sponsor that project finances are represented as accurately as possible.

Acting Assistant Professors: If you are an acting assistant professor, for example, Early PI-ship waivers are required for each application you prepare until your formal faculty appointment is finalized by the Provost Office (the completion of the "long form" process).
PI Training/PI Stewardship and Compliance

Online training must be completed before an award can be accepted.

Avoiding Financial Conflict of Interest Learning Module for New Faculty
Dr. Ann Arvin, Vice Provost and Dean for Research, has informed us about a new training tutorial titled Avoiding Financial Conflicts of Interest that must be completed by all new Stanford faculty. It is a self-paced, web-based module designed to provide an overview of the high-risk situations that can lead to financial conflicts of interest for faculty.

Carefully review proposal application and eligibility guidelines.
Contact your Research Process Manager (RPM) in the Research Management Group to discuss Stanford and sponsor policies, as well as proposal and budget development.

The Roles and Responsibilites RMG website provides additional information on the roles and responsibilites for Principal Investigators, the Departments, the Research Management group, the Office of Sponsored Research, and Accounting.

Openness in Research
Stanford's policy on Openness in Research expresses Stanford's commitment to openness in research. The policy defines and prohibits secrecy, including limitations on publishability of results. Proposals for work involving secrecy, as defined in this policy, are not permitted and such projects may not be undertaken at Stanford. An Openness in Research checklist is available to review particular project requirements.
