About Pre Award Support Services

Pre Award Support Services is committed to supporting the University community in proposal development through value-added, high-quality service and professional partnerships with Principal Investigators (PIs) in order to facilitate world-changing research.

Our proposal coordinators work collaboratively with PIs and Research Coordinators across campus to prepare grant applications, serving as a dedicated central resource in all matters related to University and sponsor policies for proposal development and submission.

  • Review the final proposal package to ensure all administrative requirements have been met
  • Obtain academic approvals and provide institutional approval for the proposal
  • Complete the final submission package, upload final documents and forms, and submit to the sponsor
