Multidisciplinary Grant Award Report
Richard Schulz, Director of the
Report from the Office of Research
Allen DiPalma, Director of the Office of Research, discussed the transition to the federal government’s Internet-based, grant-application site, Grants.gov. Proposals that will be submitted via the site must be delivered to the Office of Research 10 days prior to the submission deadline. During the most recent round of submissions, faculty members submitted 84 grant applications via the Grants.gov website. Researchers experienced few problems. Fifty-two of these proposals were submitted to the NIH. The NIH now requires that all R01 proposals be submitted electronically. The NIH will transition to electronic submission for other types of grants at later dates.
The Office of Research continues to provide instruction on how to use Grants.gov. Additional information on training sessions can be found on the Office of Research’s website.
