Proposal Development

Proposal Development

Depending on your unit, your primary point of contact for submitting a grant may be a business center, R&E Center, Extension Grant Administrator, or Unit staff for those not served by a business center. In addition, for large grant proposals the Office of Major Grant Development is available for assistance.

If you need help identifying who your grant administrator is please contact the CAHNRS Grant Team Manager at 509-335-2885.

Once you decide to pursue a proposal submission, as the lead Principal Investigator (PI) or as a partner (other department, college, institution or entity) contact your grant administrator for assistance. When proposals are completed, they are submitted to the CAHNRS Grant Team with an eREX (WSU’s Request for Approval for Extramural Support). The CAHNRS Grant Team reviews the proposal and eREX and submits to the Office of Grant and Research Development (OGRD) for final institutional approval and submission. OGRD is the only entity authorized to submit proposals on behalf of WSU.
