Grants/External Funds

The LBC’s Grant Specialists provide financial and technical post-award support for all grants where the Principal Investigator’s (PI) primary appointment resides in the SSD. The Grant Specialist’s primary responsibilities are to track spending, report on account balances, provide projections and guidance on allowability issues, manage award modifications, and interface with University Research Administration (URA) on behalf of the PI. Financial reporting on grant accounts is distributed monthly as well as upon request.

To learn more about grant funding, please contact your assigned Grant Specialist or the SSD Local Business Center at and the Grant Specialist assigned to your accounts will get in touch with you within two business days.

Support for identifying funding opportunities and fellowships, developing your research project, proposal development, and preparation of application materials is provided by the SSD’s Research Development (RD) team. The RD team coordinates with pre-award support to ensure that grant submissions are routed for review and endorsement by University Research Administration.
