Research Administration/Proposal Preparation
Limited Submissions– Limited Submissions are funding opportunities in which federal and private sponsors limit the number of proposals from an institution. An internal competition is held in order to select the most competitive proposal on behalf of the University. These opportunities are dispersed to the community in a weekly digest and accessible online.
Early Career Funding Opportunities– A repository of 350+ federal and private funding opportunities that are intended for late postdoctoral investigators and early-career faculty, usually those at or below the rank of assistant professor.
Graduate Student Funding Opportunities– an updated repository of federal and private funding opportunities that are intended for graduate students.
Postdoctoral Funding Opportunities– an updated repository of federal and private funding opportunities that are intended for postdoctoral investigators.

University Rate Agreements
From time to time, an awarding agency will request documentation to support the University’s Benefit and Facilities and Administrative rate. Cost Analyst posts the most current rate agreements on their website
Employees and students generally are not permitted to charge salary to grants or contracts for time spent writing proposals. Any effort by faculty spent writing proposals must be charged to a non-grant source of funds. Postdoctoral Students, research faculty or staff, and any others supported 100% throughout the year via grants or contracts may not spend time writing proposals during the time they are being paid to work on a grant or contract. Please see these guidelines to accurately reflect their grant writing effort.
Effort Reporting and Training
The University’s Effort Reporting System (ERS) provides the principal internal controls for certifying that the salaries and wages charged to or contributed to sponsored projects are reasonable and consistent with the portion of total professional activity committed to the projects.
Appropriately certified effort reports provide auditable documentation to demonstrate to the University’s research funders that the sponsor did in fact receive the level of effort described and expected through the proposal process, the award process, and all post award communications with the sponsor.
Before a Principle Investigator submits their first proposal, they must have completed the institution’s effort training.
