Review the Application Instructions
This is key!! You’ll want to carefully look at the solicitation, RFA, or application instructions and pay attention to:
- What are the eligibility criteria? Is John Carroll Univesity as an institution eligible to apply, and are you as an investigator eligible to apply?
- Is a preliminary proposal or letter of intent required?
- Is it a limited submission opportunity? This means that Pace University can only submit limited number of proposals for that competition.
- Are there budget restrictions or cost sharing involved?
- What are the deadlines?
Please contact the Office of Sponsored Research early – we can help!
What is required in a proposal varies by funder and program, but most include:
- An abstract (project summary/executive summary);
- Project description (including the background of the project/why it should be pursued, methodology, what will be done/who will do it, evaluation of outcomes, and timeline);
- Biosketch (abbreviated CV);
- Other sections, including data management plan, mentoring plan, facilities, and past grant support, may be requested or required depending on the funding opportunity.
For some funders, University information or documents may be required (e.g., audited financial statements, budget, etc.). Some information can be found on the Institutional Information tab; if you need specific documents, please contact the Office of Sponsored Research and we can help you obtain them.
