Proposal Approval and Submission
All research proposals are submitted in the name of the University of Georgia Research Foundation, Inc. Proposals of other types (i.e., Instruction, Public Service and Outreach, and Cooperative Extension) are submitted in the name of the University of Georgia.
You have a choice with respect to which office you utilize to submit your proposal to the XYZ Foundation. For projects submitted to private foundations, you may either work through SPA or the UGAF. Both have trained staff to help you.
Center/Institute Credit: Sometimes centers and institutes help faculty conceptualize and develop a proposal, but the award is designated to be managed by the faculty member’s academic home department. To help capture for centers and institutes their involvement in projects they end up NOT managing, we give investigators the opportunity to “credit” one to three centers for their assistance.
