The Proposal Process
All proposals to funding agencies must be submitted through LBL’s formal proposal submission process. Do not directly submit proposals to agencies – this is a violation of policy and will jeopardize your ability to accept an award if you are successful.
Contact Grants Analyst Early
If you are planning to submit a proposal for any upcoming deadline, please contact your Grants Analyst immediately. If you don’t know who your analyst is, please contact Justin Heady ([email protected] or (510) 486-6185).
Who May Submit a Proposal?
To submit a proposal through the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory you must have Principal Investigator status. Employees with the following titles have Principal Investigator status: Research Scientist, Staff Scientist, and Senior Scientist. If you are not appointed in one of these titles your Grants Analyst will assist you in requesting status from the BSE Director.
