Proposal Checklist

This program does not support biomedical research projects proposed by individual investigators.

Contact your local grants office (office of sponsored programs) to make sure you understand what they need from you and how much time they will need to process your proposal.

Step 1:  Read all online information provided at BWF’s website, then log in to the grant submission website by clicking the "Begin a proposal" button on the right navigation column. You will automatically be directed to the on-line application. BWF’s informational website and grant submission website are two connected but separate systems. You will be asked to create a user ID and password for the submission site. Once you start your proposal, you can make changes to it as often as needed by clicking the “Access your saved proposal” button. Once a proposal is submitted, it cannot be changed.

Step 2:  Prepare the proposal’s documents. When they are all complete, combine them in the required order into a single PDF file.  Name the file using the format "Last Name, First Name - CGT Application."  BWF provides template forms for three of the eight supporting documents.  The templates are downloadable from the forms and resources page.

Step 3:   When your proposal is complete, upload the documents prepared in Step 2.  Upload the combined file of supporting documents as one attachment on the "Attachments" page of the submission website.  View the checklist to ensure your application is in order. Click the "Review and Submit" button on the "Attachments" page, or the "Review My Application" link, to see if any errors are identified in your application. Once the application has been submitted, it cannot be accessed or changed. All information must be provided before the "Submit" button is available.  Print the application for your records.  Click the "Submit" button to transmit the application.  An automated e-mail will confirm that the application was successfully submitted. If you do not receive this email, your application has not been successfully submitted. If you cannot identify and resolve the problem, please call Muno Sekhon at 919-991-5122 immediately.
