Proposal Approval and Submission
Methodist University holds ultimate programmatic and financial responsibility for each externally funded project. All proposals, whether electronic or paper-based, must be routed through the proper channels and receive institutional review at least one week prior to submission.
Granting Agencies typically receive more applications than can be funded. To be competitive, each proposal must be prepared in accordance with sponsor guidelines. Many sponsors provide explanatory information with their letters of notification. This information often includes the process by which the proposal was reviewed, the number of proposals and awards, information about budget availability, and valuable feedback on the proposed project and proposal. Copies of proposal reviews may also be supplied. Contact the program officer or sponsor for further information.
