Any research or scholarly project with outside finding must be processed through the Office of Research and Sponsored Projects. Federal, state, and U-M policies and regulations guide the processing of proposals and submission to a potential sponsor, as well as the subsequent handling of projects resulting from successful proposals.
The proposal is routed through the University of Michigan via the eResearch Proposal Management (eRPM) system with an accompanying Proposal Approval Form (PAF), created in eRPM, which documents university commitments to the project at each level from the department to the central administration.
Some gifts and fellowships may not require ORSP processing. Therefore, consider: Is it a sponsored project?
A collection of materials to aid in how to write a proposal, create a budget, process it through the University, and submit it to a sponsor.
These pages provide additional help in developing proposals.
Database of all proposals submitted and awards made to UM researchers for sponsored projects. Awards are searchable from the web. Useful to proposal developers for finding others with experience with a particular sponsor.
