Internal Submission Deadlines
All external grant applications submitted by Marquette University Faculty and Staff must be routed and approved in Kuali prior to submission.
The Project Planning and Development team in the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs can assist you with the various components of developing your proposal.
Ideally, this conversation would happen 6-8 weeks prior to the sponsor deadline. Through this conversation a member of the Grants Administration team will be assigned to your project to assist with budget development and other financial considerations. A proposal development timeline is as follows:
- No less than 3 weeks prior to sponsor deadline, a summary of your proposal (concept, personnel, subs/collaborators, etc.) should be sent to the Project Planning and Development staff, and if applicable, indicate if you'd like writing assistance (this service is a first come, first served basis).
- No less than 2 weeks prior to sponsor deadline, a draft of the proposal and budget should be shared with the Project Planning and Development and Grants Administration teams.
- No less than 3 business days prior to sponsor deadline, a near-final draft of the narrative and the FINAL budget must be completed.
If a proposal is not received by the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs before the stated internal deadline, no guarantee can be provided that the proposal will be submitted on time.
