How do I submit my application?
You've finalised your proposal, and your budget is in place - what steps do you need to take to submit your application to the funder?
The first thing to remember is that all research grant applications (whether you are the lead or a co-investigator) require internal approval prior to submission the funder. The objective of the approvals process is to ensure the submission of high quality and financially sustainable bids in accordance with internal policies and standards and funder regulations.
Once all of the internal approvals are in place, the application can then be submitted to the funder. Most funders use electronic submission systems but sometimes applications are submitted by email.
If the submission systems requires the Research Office, Head of School, or anyone else, to submit a statement of approval or support for the application, make sure you leave plenty of time for this to be completed prior to the deadline.
