To ensure that federal and state guidelines are met and that the intellectual and academic objectives of the University are maintained, all proposals for external funding must be reviewed at appropriate administrative levels prior to submission. As soon as you starting thinking about applying for a specific grant opportunity you should contact the Office of Research (4181).
