Proposal Development Support

The Central Grants department provides oversight for application preparation and submission by providing grant preparation guidance and pre-award assistance. We will review and edit, assist with adherence to guidelines, and route the final proposal through UFirst for appropriate approvals and final submission. 

All submissions that contain a detailed budget or require institutional approvals (and/or institutional submissions) are required to be routed through UF approval systems. 

IFAS and DSP have hard deadlines, if completed applications are not received by IFAS 5 working days prior to agency due date the proposal will not be submitted. The firm deadline applies to calls published at least 30 days in advance of the due date. 

To meet the IFAS and DSP firm deadlines, we highly suggest following the timeline below when sending items to centralgrants@ifas.ufl.edu for processing.
