The Office of Sponsored Projects (OSP) requires pre-approval for grants submitted to domestic and foreign governments. Contact Liberal Arts Grants Services a minimum of three weeks before your grant deadline to initiate the federal grants application process
UT Austin’s Development Office (UDO) monitors our relationship with nonprofit and foundation sponsors. If you are considering contacting a foundation or other non-governmental sponsor, contact Liberal Arts Grants Services to secure UDO approval. Most non-governmental grant proposals will also require review by OSP.
Please see our Grant Submission Timeline for more information.
