Sponsored Programs


The pre-award phase represents the beginning of the grant lifecycle, which includes announcing opportunities, submitting applications, and reviewing applications.

Pre-Award Services support the University community in proposal development through value-added, high-quality service and professional partnerships with Principal Investigators in order to facilitate research.

The UCC sponsored program personnel work collaboratively with investigators to prepare grant applications, serving as a dedicated central resource in all matters related to University and sponsor policies for proposal development and submission.



The post award phase comprises a significant amount of work over the duration of the award dates, which includes implementing the grant, reporting progress, and completing the closeout requirements.

The OADRGS post-award staff is responsible for: cost projections, budget preparation and changes, salary plans, overseeing compliance with grant regulations and preparation of financial reports.
