Administrative Approval Process for External Grant Proposals
Farmingdale State College (FSC) encourages faculty and staff to engage in professional development, grants, and research activities. The Office of Research and Sponsored Program Development (ORSPD) can assist in finding funding sources. The ORSPD will also assist with grant preparation by providing information on current indirect costs, fringe benefits, cost-sharing, etc., and general assistance in budget preparation and proposal development, as well as in completing the FSC Grant Routing Sheet.
