Grant Guidelines

Grant Proposal Routing Form Grant Proposal Routing Form (263 KB)

To assure minimum proper review, the Office of Grants and Sponsored Programs should receive a completed Proposal Routing Form along with the proposal at least ten (10) working days before the deadline date. We would prefer to receive proposals 30 to 60 days prior to the due date in order that we may assist you with “guaranteeing” the funding of the proposal.
