Pre-Award

Overview

The Office of Research pre-award staff facilitates submission of funding proposals, including application process and procedures, so investigators can concentrate on the scientific components of a proposal. Pre-award staff members provide the following services:

  • Help identify funding sources based on faculty research interest
  • Provide an online mechanism to initiate the grant submission and track the submission through the stages of internal UMSON approval (Department Chair, Associate Dean for Research, and Mock Review Panel)
  • Provide administrative assistance to maintain and update biosketches
  • Assist in preparation of a grant budget and develop subcontracts
  • Coordinate mock reviews and provide written feedback to investigators
  • Prepare final grant documents and submit the application, including sign off by the University of Maryland Office of Research and Development, and submission to the reviewing/granting agency

In addition to assisting investigators, the pre-award staff captures proposal data and tracks funding successes to better manage UMSON resources and learn best practices for successful funding applications.
