UWB Grant Process

Proposal Preparation & Submission Process


Contact the UWB Office of Research ( when you are ready to begin proposal preparation as each opportunity is unique.  Please provide the following information:

  • PI (and any Co-Is at UWB or UW)
  • Sponsor
  • Solicitation number/information for guidelines

We like to get in on the process as early as possible to clear any roadblocks you may encounter.

The proposal will need to be routed through the University's on-line approval system called SAGE (System for Administering Grants Electronically).  This system sends a copy of your proposal after you approve it through Bothell Grants (Office of Budget and Planning) by your Dean or Program Director, and then it arrives in the Office of Sponsored Programs administrator's electronic in-box.  For Bothell, this is Cindy Shirley, Director of the Office of Research.

Please review the links in the menu to the left for further on-line assistance.  The Grant Lifecycle contains the entire proposal process.
