Proposal Submission

All proposals for external funding must be routed through the Research Management Group (RMG) for review, approval, and submission.  RMG reviews for completeness and compliance and works with the PI to submit the application by the sponsor deadline. Depending on sponsor requirements, either RMG or the PI will submit applications via online portals. Please note, RMG does not photocopy or mail applications to sponsoring agencies.

Be sure to check with your Research Process Manager (RPM) for the appropriate submission method well in advance of the sponsor deadline.
