What Is Pre-Award?

The Pre-Award phase begins with an idea and ends with the submission of a sponsored contract or grant proposal.  The Office of Sponsored Research (OSR) is responsible for the review, negotiation and approval of all sponsored proposals. For the pre-award phase, the office provides the following support:

  • Ensures compliance with funding agency and Kettering;
  • Provides assistance with the completion of the application forms;
  • Provides assistance with the planning and completion of the research budget;
  • Secures sponsor clarifications when needed; and
  • Works individually with submitting faculty members to ensure all application efforts are well coordinated and deadlines can be met.
