Grant Development and Assistance
The Andrew Young School of Policy Studies is committed to accelerating Georgia State University’s status as a major urban research university. We strongly encourage and support faculty in their development as funded scholars. Our research support initiatives are specifically structured to guide you through the entire grant research process from application planning and submission through award and close out which includes:
- University Research Services and Administration has a new look on their website. The hompage now includes quick reference for changes in policy, training, and workshops. Check back frequently for updates.
- Research Education and Training Workshops - One on one, group training and tutorials in writing successful grant proposals, how to find funding and submit a competitive application.
- Funding Opportunities – Find and apply for external and internal funding opportunities to include federal, state and private awards. Also help set up email alerts so that you can be alerted to new funding opportunities in your area of expertise instantly.
- Award Management –Pre and post award management to include budget development to review your budget to ensure that all potential costs have been identified, that fringe benefit and indirect (F&A) cost rates are used and calculated correctly, budget management to appropriately administer and closeout awards within the University's financial system, human subjects to review and approve your application in accordance with federal law and Georgia State policy, and compliance and safety to ensure proper treatment of human and animal subjects, address lab and biosafety issues, ensure compliance with export control regulations, as well as radiation and environmental safety.
We understand that starting any research initiative can be frustrating and very time consuming, especially to new faculty members and young investigators. Not to worry, Georgia State University Research Services and Administration offers a Faculty Mentored Grant Program. Also, Federal Agencies to include the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) offer awards to postdoctoral investigators, and those at or below the rank of Assistant Professor.
