The Psychology Department encourages faculty to seek externally sponsored research funding.
Administrative staff are available to answer questions, assist with budgeting, compilation of the proposal package, preparing and routing the UM Proposal Approval Form (PAF) to the required UM units, and overseeing project financial activity after the award is received.
If you are considering submitting a research proposal, please send an email to notify the Research Process Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org. You will then receive specific timing information on due dates for sections of your proposal, and more details about getting the process started.
