Minimum Proposal Notification

Please note, MSI requires a minimum notification of submission 3 weeks prior to the sponsor deadline.

Extramural Proposals

Extramural proposals are submitted on behalf of the UC Regents, and therefore all proposals are subject to review by the UCSB Office of Research (OR) prior to submission. OR requires a complete version of the proposal to be submitted for review no later than 7 working days before the sponsor deadline. OR requests that all proposals, regardless of sponsor or submission method, be submitted to the sponsor at least 48 hours prior to the sponsor imposed deadline.
