A research grant application is a formal request for financial assistance to a sponsoring agency in support of a proposed project or activity.
Grant-making sponsors, including the National Institutes of Health, require that all grant applications are reviewed, approved and ultimately submitted by an eligible institution on behalf of their faculty. This requirement is supported by Weill Cornell Medicine’s (WCM) internal process. Principal Investigators (PIs), or their departmental administrators (DAs), must submit all applications for research support (including those to federal or state agencies, to private foundations, or to industry sponsors) to the Office of Sponsored Research Administration (OSRA) for full review and approval. OSRA is responsible for ensuring applications are in compliance with WCM and sponsoring agency policies prior to submission.
