  • Copy the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP), sponsoredprograms@uhcl.edu, on this email. (A copy to the dean's administrative assistant is also strongly advised.)

3. Completed Submission

  • The dean's support email should be sent to OSP, sponsoredprograms@uhcl.edu, by 5 p.m. on the last day of the FRSF cycle.
  • The dean's support will be electronically acknowledged by OSP.
  • The submission process is now complete!

4. Proposals Review

  • OSP will send the proposal, CV, and dean's support to the FRSF committee member for review and consideration.
  • FRSF committee members will review and rate the proposal using the FRSF Review Form.
  • The committee will meet after the deadline to discuss the proposals and make funding recommendations to the provost.
  • Faculty will be emailed about their proposal's status after the committee meeting and will receive copies of the reviewer ratings/comment forms.

Final Report Reminder: A final report from a previous award(s) must be received by OSP and all previous awards reconciled before a new FRSF proposal is eligible for review. UHCL Policy states that final reports are due 90 days from the end date of a FRSF award.
