The office of Foundation and Corporate Relations seeks grants from local and national foundations, corporations and private agencies in support of the needs of the University and its faculty. Foundation and Corporate Relations forms part of the Wesleyan University Relations department.
A Grant Checklist must be received two weeks in advance of the due date and a proposal four days in advance of the due date to allow for a thorough review by the offices of FCR, Grants Accounting, Academic Affairs and Associate Vice President for Finance. We cannot guarantee review and permission to submit if these time frames are not adhered to. Additionally, this helps us to avoid possible conflicts with other Wesleyan initiatives, allows us time to obtain advice about specific guidelines, notify existing contacts we may have with an organization and allow for early planning if there is a need for cost share.
OF NOTENIH Announces Elimination of the Two-Day Correction Window
Effective for those applications with due dates on or after January 25, 2011 the NIH will no longer have a two day correction window. Should there be errors on an application that need correcting they must be completed and submitted by 5 p.m. on the deadline date. In order to meet this new guideline the FCR office is asking that NIH applications due January 25, 2011 or beyond be uploaded into WFS and submitted for internal review six days prior to the due date (that is two days added to our already-requested four days in advance of the due date). We cannot guarantee that applications submitted for review closer to the deadline will be able to be submitted in accordance with NIH's new guideline.New NIH Policy on Post-Submission Application Materials.
This change is effective with applications
