Frequently Asked Questions
Will I receive confirmation once I submit my grant application?
Yes, correctly-submitted grant applications will receive email confirmation of receipt within two business days. If you do not receive such confirmation, please contact the Office of Undergraduate Research at OUR@unf.edu.
When will I find out if my grant application was successful?
Grant applications go through several stages of review and approval before funding is awarded. This process may take up to two months. Dr. Cousins, the OUR Director, will be happy to respond to student inquiries about grant application status, particularly if the process is taking longer than expected.
Will I be awarded the amount for which I asked?
The Office of Undergraduate Research receives a high volume of grant applications, and thus cannot always award the requested amount. Compelling, well-written and supported, carefully-detailed applications are more likely to be awarded the requested amount, subject to available funds and the competitiveness of other grant applications. If your application has been approved for funding at an amount less than you requested, you may choose to decline the award in writing. You may apply again during the next application cycle in the hope that the full amount will be funded.
If I receive a research or creative and special project grant, how will I receive the funds?
The OUR disburses grants directly to eligible student recipients in the form of a scholarship. If the student grant recipient is ineligible for a scholarship, or if a portion of the grant is for faculty-procured expenses, some or all of the funds may be transferred to the department, and any compensation portion of the grant disbursed to the student as income.
Will I receive feedback about my grant? Will I see my scores from the reviewers?
An important part of writing a grant application is learning from reviewer feedback. All applicants will receive comments and scores from the reviewers.
If my grant isn't funded can I reapply next semester?
Yes. We recommend using the feedback you received from the reviewers to make your grant application stronger. You may also work with the Office of Undergraduate Research staff or the Writing Center to improve your grant application.
