Office of Research
Getting Started with a Proposal
Five-Day Deadline: Please be advised of the Office of Research's five business-day deadline for proposal submissions that helps ensure the highest chances for proposal funding and accommodates for unforeseen circumstances like technical issues. Proposals not meeting this deadline may be submitted to the funding agency with limited, or no, review, in which case the PI will be responsible for actions taken by the sponsor for noncompliance. There may also be delays in post-award processes involving award acceptance and account activation and setup. Please see the five-day proposal submission checklist for information on what is involved in the limited five-day review.
NOTE THAT THE OFFICE OF RESEARCH IS NOT ABLE TO RECEIVE AND SUBMIT PROPOSALS ON THE SAME DAY. THEREFORE, YOUR FINAL PROPOSAL AND SIGNED PROPOSAL ENDORSEMENT FORM MUST BE RECEIVED AT LEAST 24 HOURS PRIOR TO THE DEADLINE.
