Required for all CMSRU
faculty submissions
I want to submit a
Letter of Inquiry
Pre-proposals, preliminary applications, or
letters of inquiry.
Although OSP/ORSP or UA do not required
signed internal paperwork for these types
of submissions, please notify our offices so
we can assist. Guidelines vary.
I want to submit a proposal

Only UA or OSP/ORSP may submit proposals or
grant applications on behalf of the university.
Proposals that are not approved prior to
submission or submitted by a non authorized
representative:
 Can be rejected by the university if awarded
with unfavorable terms or conditions.
 May not include the full protection of the
university under the New Jersey Tort Claims
Act.
 Significantly delays processing time. Even
with an award notice, project work cannot
begin until university approval is acquired.
Exceptions: PIs may submit proposals on their own for money that
will be awarded directly to them, not managed by Rowan (i.e.
monetary awards, travel funds, fellowships, scholarships.)
Things to Remember
 Depending
on your project, one or more
training modules may be required
 Research Regulatory committees – IRB,
IACUC, BSC
 Electronic portal registrations
 Allow time for signatures
FAQ
Q: I’ve come from another university. How
do I transfer a grant awarded to me?
A: Since grants are awarded to institutions, not
individuals, your former institution must relinquish rights
by contacting the sponsor. OSP/ORSP will work with
both the former institution and the sponsor to ensure
a smooth transfer.
Q: How can I find grant opportunities?
A: Rowan has access to two funding databases:
InfoEd International and the Foundation Directory
Online. Contact an OSP/UA representative for
instructions on signing up and accessing these sites.
You can also check grants.gov for federal
opportunities and
http://www.nj.gov/nj/gov/njgov/grants.html
for NJ funding opportunities.
