Sponsored Programs Administration Forms


Prior to Submission

  • Faculty Research Profile Form (MS Word) - Sponsored Programs Administration  uses information from this form to match investigators' research interests with potential funding opportunities.

  • Notification of Intent to Submit - Sponsored Programs Administration asks everyone who intends to submit a proposal for funding to fill out this form as early as possible in the proposal development process. This will allow Sponsored Programs Administration to plan for staff availability to assist the Principal Investigator with development, review, and submission of all grants and contracts.

  • NIH Forms - Includes application guides and forms to be used for all NIH grants.

  • Financial Conflict of Interest Disclosure Form - This form must be submitted to Research and Compliance annually, or whenever new conflicts of interest occur.

  • Facilities and Administrative (F&A) Costs Waiver Request Form (MS Word) - This form must be completed by the Principal Investigator when requesting F&A costs to be waived or reduced for a research project. This includes cases in which the sponsor limits or does not allow F&A costs, as well as when a Principal Investigator is requesting a reduction or waiver of F&A costs. Sponsored Programs Administration will route this for signature at the time it routes the entire proposal.
