Preapplication, Internal Review and Approval Form: This form is to be completed before the grant application is prepared. It does not include any financial information. It is a “heads up” form to alert those who will later review the final application that an application is being prepared. Any questions about the grant can be addressed prior to the Principal Investigator invests extensive time in writing the grant proposal.
After the grant proposal has been completed, the Principal Investigator will proceed with the final routing of the grant. There are three forms that comprise the final routing:
Grant Proposal/Grant Award Routing and Approval Form: This form will list all sources of funding for the project, but without detailed numbers. University equipment and space needs for the project will be addressed.
Proposed Grant Summary Form: This form is for the grant funds (not matching funds) and a detailed listing of how grant funds will be used.
Matching Funds for Grants and Contracts: This form is for the matching funds only, and how the matching funds will be spent.
All of these forms are available in the forms section of the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs page at http://www.se.edu/research/ .
