Grant Submission

We ask that you inform ONRS about any and all funding-related submissions (i.e., scholarship or research grant applications that call for budgets, institutional endorsements, require School of Nursing sign-offs, and/or will be using University resources)–ideally early in the process.  Just stop by the office (6-101 WDH) or email us.  We would be happy to advise you or answer any questions.

General Grant-related Resources

  • Grant funding search tools and resources can be found here as well as here.  This page lists selected organizations that regularly fund graduate student education and research.  And finally, keep an eye out for the ONRS Update, a bi-monthly emailed newsletter that includes grant opportunities and research resources.
  • The first step in any grant submission through ONRS is completion of the Intent to Submit form.  This will trigger a meeting with ONRS to make sure your submission is on track.  Feel free to contact ONRS (or stop by 6-101 WDH) with any questions about the form or grant submission process.
  • If you need an eRA Commons user ID for your NIH proposal contact SPA.
  • If you will be seeking statistical services through the School of Nursing for your grant proposal, please complete this form or email
  • The School of Nursing Grant Resource Guide can be useful when completing the Facilties/Resource section of a proposal.
  • Deadlines:  All proposals that will be routed through the U's Sponsored Projects Administration (SPA) must be submitted to SPA by 9:00 am at least three business days prior to the grant sponsor's deadline.  The SPA due date is preceded by ONRS' deadline.  Finalized proposals are due to ONRS in a ready-to-submit state three days before the SPA due date.  Please plan accordingly.
  • NINR has a free online training course that provides an introduction to research grantsmanship for new doctoral graduates and early career scientists.
