Proposal Preparation

The Pre-Award Team in the Dietrich School’s Sponsored Projects Administration office is available to support PIs throughout the entire proposal process.  We are here to help you navigate through the various university and sponsor systems, offer guidance and support as you prepare your proposal documents, develop a budget that corresponds to the needs of your project, and submit your proposal in a timely manner.  This section of our site will walk you through the complete proposal preparation and submission process, but you should also see our Proposal FAQs Page for additional information.
