Grant seeking at UD
Support for the grantseeking process is provided by a team representing the Business
office, Advancement, and the Provost's office. Before beginning your grantseeking,
please review the official UD grant policy (here). This policy governs all grant activity at the university whether it is funded by
federal, state, or private providers.
The application for all grants at the university begins with the completion of a
pre-proposal form. This fillable form requires signatures from your dean and the Provost.
The purpose of this is to assure that research aligns with UD's mission and that leadership
is aware of any financial committments.
Once the form is complete, the UD Grants team will be in touch to arrange specific
deadlines for their review. Team mebers in the bUsiness office rview and approve all
budgets before submission occurs. In addition, they submit all research grants as
those often need additional documentation for financial purposes.
If a grant award is received, the Business office will provide assistance in the exspense
an dreporting phases throughout the lifecycle of the grant.
