The award lifecycle moves through four basic stages. The process begins with the researcher developing an idea and seeking funding. Once a source of funding has been identified, the researcher will prepare a proposal, including a statement of work, budget, etc. Next, the proposal must be routed for signatures within Georgia Tech and submitted to the sponsor. Finally, the researcher and OSP staff work together to manage the award from project startup through closeout.
This award lifecycle section of the website was created to guide researchers through every stage of the process and answer frequently asked questions. At every stage, the OSP team is here to support you. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions you have along the way.
