hot air balloons at night Proposal Submission

Prior to submitting your proposal you must have completed the following checklist:

  1. Inform your department Chairperson/ Dean and SRO of your intentions to seek external funding using the Early Notification Form at least one month prior to submission.
  2. Be a registered user on the given electronic submission system. The SRO can assist you.
  3. Provide a summary page and final budget to the Chairperson, Dean and SRO Director at least one week prior to the deadline using the Proposal Route form .
  4. Contact the Sponsored Research Office (X7316) to determine the submission date/time.
  5. Check, double check and check again that the proposal is in compliance with the guidelines!

Government Submissions

All government agencies are using Grants.gov, with the exception of NSF, as their clearinghouse for grant announcements and submissions. You can find funding sources, download program applications/guidelines and submit proposals using this site. You do not need to become a registered user to use Grants.gov because Hope College is registered as an institution. All proposal submissions must be handled by the SRO Director. If you would like to learn how to use the site, contact the SRO Director, Tracey Nally.

Foundation Submissions

Prior to any proposal submissions to foundations, the primary investigator (PI) must receive permission from the SRO. If permitted, please follow their guidelines. Each foundation has different submission requirements. More foundations are requiring electronic submissions but many still require a hard copy.
