External Funding

Cal Lutheran faculty seeking any type of external funding must work with OSRP to gain approval from campus officials prior to submitting a letter of intent, grant application, or other type of funding solicitation.

Cal Lutheran staff also work with OSRP if the proposal:

  • Is in response to a Request for Proposal (i.e. a funder’s call for a specific type of project).
  • Involves academic resources (i.e. faculty compensation, time, space, or other financial resources).

You must submit your completed proposal/application to OSRP a minimum of two weeks before the deadline, more time is ideal to maximize the strength of your proposal.

It is advised that you contact OSRP as soon as you determine to pursue a grant. OSRP will help you manage the proposal and budget development process and provide technical assistance as needed.
