Some funders require online submission by an “authorized institutional representative”; in such cases the Director of Faculty Research Support or a member of the Colorado College Grants Office will ensure that the Office of the Provost submits the proposal on the College's behalf. Other funders require an online submission from the faculty member only. Still others require a hard-copy of the proposal; in such cases the Director of Faculty Research Support can prepare the necessary copies and the proposal package for delivery.
In all cases, no proposal should be submitted in a vacuum. Please be sure to discuss any planned proposal with the Director of Faculty Research Support and become familiar with the Internal Approval Process of external grant proposals.
