Steps for Proposal Preparation and Submission
Notify the Grants Development Office
Once you've identified a funding opportunity and an identified source, fill out the Grant Interest Profile Form, which will notify the D'Youville Grants Development Office.
The Grants Development Office will review the funding source/opportunity and assist you in completing the Pre-Proposal Clearance Form A (PDF)
As Principal Investigator, you must submit a copy of the proposal to your Dean or Department Chair for review/approval.
The Office for Sponsored Programs and Grant Development Office will review the funding sponsor's Application Guidelines & Instructions with you.
At this point, you should write your proposal in accordance with the sponsor's guidelines, instructions and deadlines. The Grants Development Office will work closely with you to prepare the application.
Technical and Financial Compliance
The Financial Affairs Office, Grants Office and Sponsored Programs office will review the proposal and application for both technical and financial compliance.
You will need to get approval from the DYC Institutional Review Board (IRB) to assure compliance with any ethical or safety requirements, if applicable to the proposed project or research.
Final Proposal Review
After all of the above steps are complete, the Grants Development Office will assist you in completing and submitting the Final Proposal Review (Form B).
