Sponsored project proposals are supported by the Office of Research and Innovation. Sponsors provide critical detail in the RFPs, including the funding mechanism, PI eligibility, and requisite proposal elements.
PIs should work with the assigned research program officer to review sponsor requirements and access sponsor systems, which often require commonly requested information about WMU. Some RFPs may require or recommend submission of an advance concept paper or pre-proposal via a separate system or method. Read about timeline tips in the next panel.
