All sponsored program (grant) related applications must secure the College’s endorsement, regardless of amount, and
regardless of whether or not we are partnering with another institution. This includes initial letters of interest/inquiry and all sub-award contracts.
The Routing & Authorization Timeline serves as a guide for Carthaginians involved in the first four steps of the Grant Life Cycle. Adherence to the schedule outlined in the Routing & Authorization Timeline will ensure adequate completion of the Routing & Authorization Form and compliance with Carthage policies.
Understanding the Grant Project Idea Form
Generating a viable sponsored program/ research project idea isn’t as simple as being creative and knowledgeable. The GRANT PROJECT IDEA FORM is intended for faculty and staff who wish to pursue grant (sponsored program) funding for a project or event. Information collected through this form will assist the Office of Sponsored Programs in providing grant related resources, support and training. This form is a brainstorming tool, and in no way initiates the routing & authorization process required for the College’s endorsement of a grant funded project.
Once you have developed your project idea & identified a potential funding source, you are ready to initiate the Routing & Authorization process. Completion of the Routing & Authorization Form (Coming Soon!) is required and must be completed prior to submission of any proposal.
The form is a 2-PART on-line process and ensures all proposals the the full support and approval of Carthage College. If PART B of the Routing & Authorization Form is not received a minimum of 10 business day prior to the proposal deadline, may place their proposal submission at risk. Review the Routing & Authorization Instructions to better understand this process.
