Research Sponsored Programs


Sponsored Programs facilitates institutional approval for the pre-award phase of research proposals. Working with faculty, students, staff, and trainees, Sponsored Programs identifies potential funding sources as well as reviews, submits, and approves grant, contract, and subcontract applications; and negotiates final award documents to ensure compliance with the College and sponsor policies. Sponsored Programs facilitates submission of annual and final programmatic reports and assists with sending prior approval requests to sponsors.

College-specific resources are available to Baylor College of Medicine employees by logging into the Intranet and going to the Sponsored Programs page (Baylor login required).
