Approval for Grant Applications

You must notify your Head of School of your intention to prepare an application for research funding and obtain their approval to do so in advance of a formal application being prepared.

You should liaise with your Research Support Officer while preparing your application.  The Research Support Officer can provide advice and assistance with various aspects of preparing your proposal including costing.

You must also complete a Research Grant Application Summary form ( RGAS ), have it authorised and forward it to the Research Support Office in advance of your application being submitted to the research sponsor.
