Find a Funding Opportunity.

Is MSU an eligible institution?

If not, move on to another opportunity.

Is the RFP institutionally limited?

Search https://vprgs.msu.edu/funding-opportunities/institutionally-limited
If yes, work with Research Office and follow these guidelines: https://vprgs.msu.edu/institutionally-limited-application-procedure

When is the proposal due?

Work with Research Office to establish a proposal timeline following VPRGS proposal submission deadline policy:

Does the sponsor require cost share?

If so, how much? Where will this money come from?
This requires extra time and approvals, please start early.

Does the sponsor allow indirect cost recovery (IDC)?

If not, is the Department Chair in support of pursuing a grant that does not provide IDC?

Is this proposal a Grants.gov submission or other?

A CHM research administrator will be assigned to work with you. They will begin communication with you and set a proposal timeline to meet the Vice President for Research & Graduate Studies (VPRGS) proposal submission deadline. They will work with the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) to finalize the proposal document in Kuali Coeus.
Once budget needs are sent, a draft budget will be started for your review based on the solicitation requirements and agency guidelines.
