Grants Management offers services that support the pre-award and post-award process for UND's SMHS sponsored projects.
A grant is a financial award given to a recipient under contractually agreed upon terms. Sponsors create funding opportunities, often with a predetermined fund limit. A qualifying individual or organization can submit a proposal with the hopes of being awarded these funds to use them for research, education, community outreach, program maintenance, etc.
The development of a proposal, the collection of required documents, and the submission of a proposal are all considered part of the pre-award process. At UND SMHS, before a proposal can be submitted to a sponsor, an individual or department must submit their proposal to the RSPD office via the Novelution system to get prior approval. A pre-award procedure that outlines this process can be found here.
Submitting a proposal does not guarantee funding, but if a proposal is awarded by a sponsor, the award set-up process and maintenance of the project itself are a part of the post-award process. A checklist that outlines this process can be found here.
