Proposal and Budget Preparation
Wilkes University faculty seek funding from a range of governmental and private sources for their research, educational, and scholarly projects. Faculty who anticipate a proposal submission should contact the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (x5534) as early in the process as possible, especially if they will need assistance with identifying funding opportunities, or if they are considering a multi-year proposal or a collaborative proposal with another institution. At a minimum, 3-4 weeks are required to process applications or proposals that are relatively small in scope and budgetary requirements. Depending on the nature of the project and need for assistance, a faculty member may require consultation and assistance from the Office for several weeks or even months.
A signed Intent to apply form and completed budget must be submitted before a proposal can be submitted to a funding agency.
