Resources for Grant Writers at the University of Alabama

UA Proposal Submissions

Please also visit the Office for Sponsored Programs (OSP) as they must receive your proposal submissions for external funding.  They have several resources and can assist in the proposal preparation process. Additionally, OSP is where you will identify your specific content's Grant Specialist.

The Cayuse Research Suite is a cloud-based management software for projects administration and manages proposal submissions on campus. You have access to Cayuse with your MyBama login. For more general information visit the website in Research and Economic Development. If you have specific questions please find and contact your appropriate Grant Specialist in the Office for Sponsored Programs (OSP).

Internal Funding

The Office of Research and Economic Development has a small grant program (SGP). The Research Grants Committee (RGC) comprised of UA Faculty reviews proposals annually from all faculty who apply. The deadline is in the Fall Semester.

While not a grant, the Emerging Scholars Program in the Office for Undergraduate Research (OUR) is a program that matches faculty mentors with undergraduate students in different disciplines. Faculty agree to mentor a student for 2 credit hours related to a specific research project. The project can be faculty led or student designed. Students are are encouraged to stay with their faculty mentor until graduation. Faculty receive a one time $400 stipend for each student they mentor.
