Required Forms For Grant Submissions

Below is a list of required OSP forms to support funding proposal requests. These forms assist us in collecting all critical information needed by the University and to apply for the grant. OSP will submit all final grant requests on behalf of the principal investigator (PI).

Please note: all grant proposals must undergo an internal review process prior to submission to the funding agency.

Please provide all of the following required and final documents to our office two weeks prior to the funder's deadline.

Required Document Checklist

Open Acrobat Reader, go to "File," then open and locate the prosum template. Enter your information into the form and then click "save as" to rename the file.

  2. Appropriate Internal Budget Form
