Deadlines

In order to allow time for application review and approval, relevant research proposal paperwork must be in the Dean’s Office at least 2 weeks prior to the applicable external deadline. The Dean’s Office needs to see a completed Research Application Summary Form, which the Chair or Director should have already signed, and also a copy of the entire grant application, including the proposed budget.

DO = Dean’s Office deadline; ORS = Office of Research Services deadline
