Internal Paperwork

The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) requires internal paperwork to streamline the review process for research grants and contracts. Faculty/staff interested in submitting can submit an email to with a brief description of the research plan or other pertinent information. The purpose of the email is to give OSP staff a heads-up about a faculty member’s interest in submitting a proposal to an external funding agency so that OSP staff may effectively plan and prioritize their work. For projects requiring submission by a 501 (c ) agency, OSP will notify the Rowan University Foundation and coordinate the transfer of the grant submission to them.  OSP will also obtain all administrative signatures when required.

A two-page “Proposal Planning Form” should be completed by the Principal Investigator (PI), printed, signed by the PI, the PI’s Chair, and the PI’s Dean and submitted to OSP within FIVE DAYS of the sponsor’s deadline.
