Support for Preparing a Center Grant
The Dean of Research Office provides supplemental and complementary assistance to faculty for support in preparing a center grant proposal.
Center Grant Resources
As those who have prepared multi-investigator proposals know, there are many tasks related to the planning phase and coordination of these efforts that need to be completed before or in parallel with tasks that are managed by research administration staff. It can be a daunting task to assemble the materials required from all participants, and institutional information may be necessary in the response to a particular center grant announcement.
The Center Grants Coordinator can assist you in pulling together a complex center proposal, especially those involving interdisciplinary initiatives and faculty and students from different schools. The Center Grants Coordinator can:
Ensure proposals are responsive to specific requirements in requests for proposal (RFP) and comply with proposal preparation guidelines for the funding agency
Coordinate all proposal requirements including letters of commitment for cost-sharing requirements, space requirements, sub-award budgets and commitment forms, and other certifications as needed
Work with finance staff to prepare the budget; ensure the budget reflects all aspects of the proposal and is responsive to the RFP
Coordinate with institutional officials in the OSR ( Office of Sponsored Research) or RMG (Research Management Group) regarding specifics of the proposals and resolution of any open issues that could impact timing of proposal submission
