Sponsored Projects Handbook 

During the past year, the offices of Research and Graduate Studies, Grants Accounting, and Foundation, Corporate, and Government Relations have been working to develop resources to support transparent and efficient management of external funding. The result of these efforts is the new Sponsored Projects Handbook

The handbook provides a guide to the management of sponsored projects at the University of the Incarnate Word, and to the policies and procedures which ensure that externally funded projects comply with federal regulations and institutional protocols.

The goal is to foster faculty professional development and to recognize the leadership of an individual faculty member in relation to the university’s Mission. Projects may be proposed that will allow an individual faculty member the opportunity to develop new skills, research areas, or initiatives. Awards are for projects in a one-year period, from June 1 to May 31.
