Proposal Approval Form:
The individual responsible for the scientific and technical direction of the project is considered the Principal Investigator (PI). The PI will be responsible for completing the Proposal Approval Form and submitting it to the Pre-Award Services Manager, Sheri Dave, no later than 5 business days prior to the Sponsor's deadline submission date. This form requires the signature of the PI, Co-PI, Consultant (if applicable), and the respective departmental Chair and Dean of the PI and Co-PI. After you have contacted Sheri Dave, complete the entire form (parts 1-4) and click the submit button. After the form is submitted, final instructions will be provided for signing and routing the form for required signatures.
Previously Funded Proposals:
Access to previously funded proposals is provided by the Grants Resource Center (GRC) of which UWG is a member. Use the GRC Proposal Library to obtain and review a proposal that was successfully funded for the same or similar program for which you are seeking funding. Reviewing successful proposals can provide helpful insight into approaches for writing your research proposal. You can also contact the Principal Investigator who wrote the funded proposal which can provide further insight into the proposal process and possibly lead to collaborations. See page for instructions to access the GRC Proposal Library.
