Pre-Award Grant Support

Welcome! CSUSM encourages faculty and staff to seek external funding to enhance resources and opportunities on and off campus.  Support and direction for obtaining and managing grant funding from governmental sponsors are provided as follows:

Now part of the Office of Graduate Studies and Research, the campus grants Pre-Award Office offers support services for developing and submitting external grant proposals.  Faculty and staff may rely on this office for assistance with funding opportunity identification, grant writing, proposal package preparation, and the internal approval process.

Once an award is made, the University Auxiliary and Research Services Corp.  (UARSC) Office of Sponsored Projects is responsible for the administration of sponsored programs including award acceptance, new project orientation, agency compliance, expense monitoring, and closeouts. 

Other (non-governmental) external funding requests are typically supported by the Office of University Advancement. For assistance in determining how to proceed with your proposal, contact Jan Cushman at x4722 or any member of the OGSR pre-award staff.
