Submitting Your Grant Proposal Electronically

Even though your grant proposal is now submitted electronically, you still need to get prior internal approvals before you submit.  Most sponsors that allow electronic grant proposal submissions permit the PI or PD to upload their grant proposal but require that an authorized institutional official electronically submit and/or sign the grant proposal before it is "officially submitted".  If you plan to submit a grant proposal electronically, please contact our office at 439-6000 or as soon as possible.


Do you want to send us a grant proposal electronically?
