Preparing & Submitting Proposals

There are many steps to developing a research project and preparing a proposal for submission. The Office of Research aims to provide and identify services and resources to aid the researcher’s efforts in developing and preparing a project or proposal.

Getting Started


PI Eligibility

UC policy states that only qualified members of the Academic Senate and appointees in other eligible title groups listed in the UC Academic Senate policy may submit proposals without the need for an exception. The assigned analyst will be checking to verify that the individual submitting this proposal is an eligible PI according to UC Davis policy. If they are not, the analyst will request a completed PI Exception form (Form 105A).

In addition, a Sponsor may have PI eligibility requirements which need to be met, such as requiring the PI to be a Young Investigator. Sponsor-specific PI eligibility requirements can typically be found in the funding announcement.
