Grants and Contracts Office

The Grants and Contracts Office processes proposals and awards for sponsored programs for all faculty and staff in the College of Agricultural Sciences. This includes proposals and awards in support of Research, Extension, and Undergraduate Education.

Grant Proposal Submission and Deadline Process

Effective January 3, 2017, the Office of Grants and Contracts (OGC) will follow a revised grant proposal submission process. This process was developed over months of discussion between OGC, the Associate Dean for Research, and faculty representatives from each department in the College of Agricultural Sciences. Please review the timeline as you prepare your future grants. Please direct any questions to Maryellen O’Brien, Director, OGC.
