New to sponsored research at YSU? Need a refresher?

For a guide through the sponsored projects process, consider reading the PI Handbook, found in the Research Services Tools sidebar on the right. It provides Principal Investigators (PIs) with essential information for completing sponsored research projects, such as how to navigate the Pre- and Post-Award processes, how to maintain compliance with sponsors and federal policies, tips for developing proposal narratives and budgets, and definitions that clarify terms.
