Grant Proposal and Submission Procedures
As of late there has been some confusion about proposal submission and procedures. Faculty
and administrators are highly encouraged to contact the Grants Office Director to discuss a
potential project or grant application. Contacting the Grants Office early in the process will
allow us to provide you with the highest level of service to make your proposal even more
competitive and to lower the frustration that can occur while preparing a proposal and the
associated budget and budget narrative. You can find out more about submission procedures
at the Grants Office website at www.aug.edu/grants. Go to “Submission Procedures” under
“The Grants Process” at the top of the left hand column on the website. You will get a step by
step direction to writing a proposal.
