Authorization To Pursue External Funding Form

Once the PI has narrowed down their research project and funding opportunity, they should complete the Authorization to Pursue External Funding form with a copy of the funding agency’s call for proposals. The form should be signed by the PI’s School Director/division supervisor, indicating the supervisor’s support for pursuing the opportunity.  The OSP then reviews the opportunity to assure there is sufficient time and resources to support the proposal through submission. The fully signed form commits the OSP to work with the PI to submit the proposal.
