Step1:  Before you begin to write a grant application, you must submit a Proposal Routing Form (PRF) to ORSP. The PRF contains three important elements for proposal approval:

  1. Signature from the appropriate Dean;
  2. statement of work; and
  3. budget with a justification.

Step 2: Before you submit proposal to ORSP. All proposals are required to be reviewed and approved by the unit head and dean.
