Updated Policy for Applying to Private Foundations

ESU faculty are encouraged to seek external funding from private foundations. However, you need to coordinate your efforts with the ESU Foundation. New procedures have been adopted in order to facilitate this and to ensure that our proposals to private foundations are stronger and have a better chance of success. Please read this policy before you approach a private foundation or develop a grant proposal.  Policy for Applying to Private Foundations

New Financial Conflict of Interests Policy (FCOI)

In order to comply with federal regulations related to federal grants, a financial conflict of interests policy and training module has been developed.  Principal investigators applying for grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF) or the Public Health Service (i.e. NIH) are required to view the FCOI training module, complete the applicable federal online tutorials, and submit a disclosure statement at the time of proposal submission. Co-PI's are also required to comply with this policy.  The training module and information on the federal online tutorials are available on the Federal Compliance page.  The Disclosure Form is available from that module as well as on the Forms page.  Contact the Research and Grants Center if you have any questions.
