Welcome!

The Pre-Award offices consist of two Research, Economic Development & Graduate Education ("R-EDGE") offices that provide services for the preparation, approval, and submission of proposals for sponsored projects and other funding provided by off-campus entities. 

*****  The Pre-Award office for your proposal is determined by the source of your target funding. *****

 

  • The Grants Development Office (“GDO”) provides submission services for proposals funded by public (government) and foreign sources.
  • The Corporate Engagement & Innovation Office ("CEI") provides submission services for proposals funded by for-profit (industry) entities, non-profit/foundations, and provides support for SBIR/STTR proposals.
