Frequently Asked Questions

Pre-Award Services

If you are requesting funding from a source outside the University and it includes anything more detailed than a Rough Order of Magnitude (ROM) budget, the answer is likely yes. Any time a categorical or detailed budget for funding is submitted to an external agency and especially when it includes cost-share/co-funding, that budget should be reviewed and approved by the appropriate Institutional personnel. Additionally, if the opportunity specifies a categorical budget (e.g. $20,000 stipends, $10,000 travel, $5,000 research expenses – Total $35,000 award) it should be routed for review and approvals prior to submission. Please contact Pre-Award Services.
