CALS Research Division has had a number of questions about the processing of some grant competitions (i.e. graduate school, provost office, UW System, and so forth). The following will outline how applications will be handled by CALS.
All applications (regardless of what the instructions state) should be routed to the CALS Research Division with a WISPER record.
Since many of the competitions require original signatures, the completed application with all signatures, except for the division signature, should be delivered to the CALS Research Division at least one week prior to the due date listed in the proposal instructions.
Upon receipt, the applications will be reviewed for submission. Upon approval, units will be contacted to pick up and complete the delivery of the submission.
