Apply for Grants

When you are interested in obtaining grant funding, SPF is available to assist you at each step along the way. If you are looking for funding sources, please see our resources for finding funding.

After having a conversation with your Chair and Dean about your proposal idea, SPF requests you schedule an appointment with the Pre-Award Office to initiate the formal HSU SPF proposal routing process. The SPF provides a step-by-step timeline you should initiate at a minimum one month preceding the proposal due date. The earlier you start the process, the better.

PI’s are strongly urged to allot ample time for a detailed proposal review (full review) prior to proposal submission. The HSU SPF reserves the right to withdraw any submitted proposal that does not comply with the CSU and University policy, and/or State and Federal regulations. E.O. 890 requires University approval prior to submission.

Principal Investigator Eligibility

The SPF Principal Investigators and Project Directors Policy identifies those individuals who are eligible to serve as Principal Investigators (PIs), Co-Principal Investigators (Co-PI’s), and Project Directors (PDs).
