Internal, UMN Proposals
Do I need to submit a Grant Application Notification form for internal, UMN proposals such as the Masonic Cancer center?
Yes, we will help you prepare a budget and PRF (if necessary) prior to the internal deadline. All other items are prepared and submitted by you.
What if the agency announcement was released with less than 1 month before the deadline? Can I still submit a proposal?
Yes, we will work together to submit a proposal. The department grants professional will adjust the schedule to accommodate the proposal and the PI will adjust his/her schedule to adhere to the required deadlines.
(This exception applies to announcements that were released within the 1 month window, not those the PI was unaware of until that time.)
Letter of Intent
Letter of Intent (LOI), do I need to submit an intent form?
If you are submitting a letter of intent (LOI)/pre-proposal, and hope to be invited for a full proposal, you should absolutely fill out the intent form at least 1 month before the full proposal is due.
