THE ROUTING PROCESS:
PREPARING AND SUBMITTING
A GRANT PROPOSAL FOR EXTERNAL FUNDING
No matter what your proposal may be called, letter of intent, pre-proposal, cooperative agreement, contractual services, proposal, research white paper, grant application, memorandum of understanding, etc. If you are requesting external funds for a project on behalf of a division at Louisiana Tech with a scope of work that will be used for classroom enhancement, research, or scholarly pursuits, then your project must be routed internally through the established channels. The below list is meant to provide you a beginning and end for the proposal routing process. (Funding agency searches, research principles, and grant writing skills are not included in this list).
