Obtaining Approval for External Grant Submissions at FHSU
external funding should not be submitted to an external funder without internal
approval!!! Please note that the university submits grant applications, not individual faculty members or departments. Only authorized institutional officials may sign grant proposals or contracts for external funding. The Office of Scholarship and Sponsored Projects is responsible for submissions to federal agencies, and provides oversight and support for approvals and submissions.
Internal approvals for proposals for external
funding (grants) must use In4grants for routing and documenting approvals. In4Grants combines several functions in a web-based service, including grant
searches, proposal development, internal approvals and reporting. In4Grants
provides a secure web environment suitable for collaboration. The FHSU
In4Grants workspace can be accessed through the internet by computer, tablet or
smartphone. Staff may set up a project workspace in In4Grants for their grant or contract proposal, or they may request assistance from the Office of Scholarship and Sponsored Projects. Contact Leslie Paige 785.628.4349 firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
