The Grants Process at EFSC
Grants management at Eastern Florida State College is a collaborative effort between principal investigators and their supervisors, the grants office staff, finance staff and administration. The Grants Development Office supports, but does not manage, funded projects and provides principal investigators and their supervisors with an overview of pertinent federal, state and university laws, rules and regulations. All grant proposals, amendments and contracts related to funded projects must go through the Grants Development Office.
Grants Development Consultant Christopher Haight offers the following advice in the article "Moving Beyond the 'Budget Stress' Request: Building Grant-Eligible Projects":
- "Funders are actually seeking much more comprehensive projects beyond basic operating expenses, salaries, or equipment."
- "They either seek out the most promising innovations or seek to sustain and scale-up evidence-based practices that are not yet widely adopted."
