Before a full proposal will be accepted, the applicant must first submit a completed notice of intent form for each research proposal to be submitted. The notice of intent must be submitted via LOGAN to the Board of Regents by 4:30 p.m., September 14, 2012 and for ATLAS by October 10, 2012. One of the primary purposes of the notice of intent is to assist the Support Fund R & D Program staff in identifying potential reviewers. Failure to provide the required information on potential reviewers as described in the instructions in LOGAN, including telephone numbers and email addresses, may result in disqualification of the notice of intent. In this event, the full proposal for which the notice of intent was filed will not be accepted.
If you are interested in submitting a proposal, please see the specific attached RFP and contact the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs about your intentions.
Thank you very much.
