OR Proposal Submission Process
PROPOSAL SUBMISSION MATERIALS AND DEADLINES
Completed proposals, with all required signed internal documents, must be submitted for review and approval through a funding proposal in Huron Grants no less than five full business days prior to the published sponsoring agency deadline.
For more information regarding the “5 Day Rule” please refer to the following notice from our Vice President of Research, Dr. Elizabeth Klonoff. CLICK HERE
In order for a complete proposal to meet the 5-day rule, a funding proposal must be submitted in HRS Grants for Specialist Review 5 days before the sponsor deadline ( 8 days if hard-copy submission) and all documents except the final scope of work must be entered/uploaded into the sponsor’s website or application 5 days prior to the submission deadline:
The OR is located in Suite 501 of the University Tower in Research Park. The office is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday-Friday, and all business must be conducted during these hours.
When a complete proposal is ready for submission to the agency, the Central Proposal Specialist will submit the proposal on the university’s behalf. If the agency requires the PI to submit the proposal, the proposal must be routed through Huron Grants prior to PI submission. The OR routing process takes five days. Additional time should be allowed to enable sufficient time for the PI to submit after final review and approval through Huron Grants review and approval process. Only complete and unedited applications that have been fully reviewed and approved by OR through the Huron Grants process may be submitted by the PI on behalf of the university. Under no circumstances should proposals be submitted by any party on behalf of UCF other than OR or ORC Research Foundation.
For more information, please read UCF Policy 4-214 Proposal and Acceptance of Sponsored Awards for Research and Development.

After final review, ensuring the proposal is complete, administratively accurate and follows agency guidelines and any other applicable requirements, the Central Proposal Specialist will then complete and sign necessary assurances, certifications and representations. Any proposal that does not meet review criteria will be returned back to the investigator team for further correction.
Fully routed and approved proposals will be submitted by the Central Proposal Specialist authorized to submit proposals on behalf of the University, after final review of certified documents.

This site includes information to assist university scholars through the announcement, application and post-award stages and to familiarize prospective partners with the breadth of funded research conducted at the university.
Sponsored research at UCF is growing exponentially. UCF is committed to the pursuit of excellence and intellectual growth and seeks to excel at moving ideas to innovation and realization. The Carnegie Foundation rates UCF as a "very high research activity" university. We’ve been on an upward trajectory for years and in 2020 UCF surpassed the $200 million dollar mark in external funding. UCF's pioneering efforts to commercialize technology continue to stimulate local economies throughout the state. The number of patents at UCF also continue to climb with 44 U.S. issued patents produced in 2019.
