10 I want to submit a Letter of Inquiry Pre-proposals, preliminary applications, or letters of inquiry. Although OSP/ORSP or UA do not required signed internal paperwork for these types of submissions, please notify our offices so we can assist. Guidelines vary.
11 I want to submit a proposal Only UA or OSP/ORSP may submit proposals or grant applications on behalf of the university. Proposals that are not approved prior to submission or submitted by a non authorized representative:Can be rejected by the university if awarded with unfavorable terms or conditions.May not include the full protection of the university under the New Jersey Tort Claims Act.Significantly delays processing time. Even with an award notice, project work cannot begin until university approval is acquired.Exceptions: PIs may submit proposals on their own for money that will be awarded directly to them, not managed by Rowan (i.e. monetary awards, travel funds, fellowships, scholarships.)
12 Things to RememberDepending on your project, one or more training modules may be requiredResearch Regulatory committees – IRB, IACUC, BSCElectronic portal registrationsAllow time for signatures
13 FAQQ: I’ve come from another university. How do I transfer a grant awarded to me?A: Since grants are awarded to institutions, not individuals, your former institution must relinquish rights by contacting the sponsor. OSP/ORSP will work with both the former institution and the sponsor to ensure a smooth transfer.
14 Q: How can I find grant opportunities? A: Rowan has access to two funding databases: InfoEd International and the Foundation Directory Online. Contact an OSP/UA representative for instructions on signing up and accessing these sites. You can also check grants.gov for federal opportunities andfor NJ funding opportunities.
