Sponsored Research Office

Preparing Proposals for External Funding

Funding Sources

The SRO can assist at the earliest stages of proposal development by identifying potential sponsors for your project. The SRO maintains up-to-date reference materials on program schedules and sponsor guidelines and policies. Computer searches will also be available this fall for grant opportunities. Discussions with the SRO can help to broaden the pool of possible sponsors for your project.

If you have a sponsor in mind when developing a proposal, current information about the program deadline, the review process, allowable costs, past and present funding priorities, grantor policies, and sponsor program personnel contacts is available through the SRO.
