Plan to Initiate New External Grant Proposal

For faculty, staff and organizations of the College of Education and Human Development

This form must be completed and submitted prior to any external grant proposal being submitted to the Office of the VicePresident of Research (OVPR). It is recommended that the form be completed as early in the grant development process as possible in order to ensure that the proposal will be approved.


The completed form must be submitted to the department chair/unit director no later than two weeks prior to the date that the proposal must be submitted to OVPR.

Please note that if there are substantive changes to the proposal after the original submission to the department chair, a revised form should be resubmitted to the department chair/unit director prior to submission to OVPR.
