Great ideas are at the center of every proposal, and every applications are much more than the project narrative. PIs are required to submit anything from basic budgets and justifications to cost proposals broken down into multiple phases by government fiscal year. These requirements are often overwhelming, but they are necessary. The COE Proposal Support team has created a range of templates and resources listed under this subheading to help PIs with basic budget preparation. Our proposal forms and templates section covers budgets and institutional forms, as well as pre-formatted templates for National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health. We've also taken the guess work out of GRA appointments, OPE, F&A, and travel by providing rate tables. Conflict of interest and broader impacts information is in here too.

Our staff is here to assist you! Here is our proposal submission timeline policy reminder:
