Developing Proposals

Obtaining funding for a worthy project starts with a well-crafted proposal.

Here, you can find processes and procedures, policies and guidelines, and tips and tools to facilitate and support your proposal development.

The Office of Research and Development provides service to faculty in their pursuit of sponsored funding. The Office of Sponsored Programs Administration reviews proposals for submission to federal, state, and local government agencies and to foundations and other nonprofit funders. The Center for Clinical Trials and Corporate Contracts reviews proposals for clinical trials and research agreements funded by corporations (for-profit organizations).

Kuali Research, UMB's enterprise software system for electronic research administration, is used to create the proposal budget, compile the proposal, route for approvals, and — in the case of many federal proposals — submit to the agency.
