How It Works
This system acts as a gateway for you to submit a one-time/single funding request to multiple funding sources.
After you enter your information and your department approves and forwards your application, the request will be matched to opportunities in the system.

The four main stages of a funding request:
1. Application Information
To begin a new application, you will need to provide specific information about your funding needs.
2. Signatures
After you have completed a funding request, the appropriate electronic signatures are collected from your department. Appropriate signatures are determined by each department and College and will be routed automatically.
3. Application Review
Once all of the required signatures and materials are collected, your request enters the review phase. Here, funding sources collaboratively review your request.
4. Award Notification
If your application is funded, you will be notified by each funding source.
