The College of Humanities and Sciences Sponsored Programs Office (CHS-SPO) assists faculty in developing research ideas, finding funding, submitting proposals and managing grants. Faculty interested in submitting a grant proposal must notify the CHS-SPO by completing the following two steps:

  1. Complete this online form.
  2. Review a short slide presentation [PDF] outlining the policy and process for submitting a grant proposal.

If you are unsure whether the award qualifies as a gift or grant, please email and a staff member will provide assistance. Read VCU’s sponsored agreements and gifts policy.

Faculty are welcome to email the CHS-SPO at with questions or requests for assistance at any point along the grant life cycle. We look forward to supporting you in your sponsored research and scholarship endeavors!
