Most funding agencies specify in their published guidelines or application forms the preferred format for proposal preparation, which should be followed whenever possible. Deviation from published guidelines could lead to your proposal being returned without review.
All proposals for external funding must be reviewed and approved by Sponsored Projects Services using the Electronic Proposal Clearance System (EPCS). Proposals will be reviewed and submitted by your Pre-Award Sponsored Projects Administrator in accordance with university and sponsor guidelines.
