The Grants Process at EFSC
Grants management at Eastern Florida State College is a collaborative effort between the principal investigator (the individual applying for the grant) and their supervisor, the Grants Office, Accounting, 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 first gain approval through the Grants Development Office.

- Remember the Three Cs of Effective Communication:
Be clear, concise, and consistent.
