Apply for a Sponsored Project

For all proposals, letters of intent, pre-proposals, subaward commitments and unfunded research-related agreements and contracts, OSP will facilitate the Provost's review and signature as the contract ultimately binds Seattle University with an external entity.

A Proposal Transmittal Form is required for all full proposals and some letters of intent (criteria is described in the Proposal Transmittal Requirement section here) and is due to the OSP, with your proposal, at least five business days ahead of the sponsor's deadline.

The PI should contact OSP at the pre-application stage for OSP to determine the necessity of a PTF. If a letter of intent, pre-proposal, subaward commitment, or proposal is submitted without a PTF, and thus without institutional reviews and approvals, the University holds the right to decline the grant or contract if awarded. A PTF will be required after the fact for any proposal submitted without one.

Roles & Responsibilities

Applying for external funding is a collaboration between the principal investigator/project director and their department/college, the OSP, and the Office of the Provost. Depending on the nature of the proposal, the Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations and/or the Office of the Controller may be involved.
