A wide range of support is available to Institute faculty members for research, instructional, developmental, or service projects.
External funding can come from many outside sponsors, including federal, state or local agencies. The Office of Sponsored Programs can help identify potential opportunities and facilitate the proposal submission process. Proposals must be approved by the Institute before they can be submitted to an external funding agency for consideration. Approval is obtained by routing a copy of the proposal along with a proposal approval form to the required offices for signature approval prior to the granting agency’s deadline for submission.
