Submit Your Proposal
Make friends with your departmental grants analyst early on, and learn how they can help you and what you need to do independently. If you are submitting a proposal to a public funding agency (NSF, NIH, DOD, etc.), you will work through Sponsored Research Administration (SRA), located in the Student Services Building. If you are submitting a proposal to a private funding agency (Gates Foundation, Google, SunTrust, etc.) that has a deliverable (such as a report or product), you will work through the Research Foundation. Be cognizant of the three day rule, and know that you can send your proposal components piecemeal for early review!
