Proposal Development

The Western State Colorado University Office of Sponsored Programs is responsible for submitting proposals requesting support for research and other scholarly projects to funding agencies.

Resulting awards are made to the Office of Sponsored Programs, which administers them on behalf of faculty and staff at WSCU. Faculty and staff members who direct sponsored research programs under university auspices are responsible for effective conduct of these projects. The information below is intended to help principal investigators and their support staff fulfill that responsibility.

The Office of Sponsored Programs will work with the applicant to obtain the signature of the appropriate Vice President after a review of the application and budget associated with the application.

Please review the section on Grant Incentive Award to determine if you are eligible for a Grant Incentive Award. If so, please complete the paperwork and submit at the same time as the Pre-Award Approval Application.
