Proposal Development

The Western 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 Institution, and the Office of Sponsored Programs administers them on behalf of faculty and staff at Western. Faculty and staff members who direct sponsored programs are responsible for effective implementation of these projects in accordance with sponsor guidelines. The information below will answer questions and provide direction on various grant related activities and responsibilities. 

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.
