External Grants Submission Process Timeline for Applicants:

Applicants complete an “Intent to Apply Form" through the website.
At least 3 weeks prior to submission deadline
Based on your specific funding announcement, RFP, and/or application package, the Office of Grants and Funded Research will provide a detailed checklist of all materials required to complete your grant application. This checklist will note who is responsible for providing each piece of the complete proposal packet.
At least 2 weeks prior to submission deadline
The primary applicant(s) must submit a final draft of the entire proposal and budget to the Office of Grants and Funded Research.
When submitting the final draft, the applicant must also submit a hard copy of the CCSU Grants and Funded Research Routing Sheet that includes the project director’s signature, the department chairperson’s signature, and the dean’s/director’s signature.
The Office of Grants and Funded Research will confirm that the application packet is complete, will collect all necessary remaining signatures for the routing sheet, will consult with the Post-Awards Grants Administration Office regarding any outstanding budgetary issues, and will consult with the primary applicant(s) regarding the submission of the proposal to the funding agency.
