Grants Administration

Each year, the Research Administration office at the Waisman Center processes the grant applications and progress reports on behalf of Waisman Center Investigators. The Waisman Center Research Administration office also assists investigators with final invention statements, material transfer agreements, and non-disclosure and confidentiality agreements. This office manages all of the required clearances (i.e., human subjects, animal) related to research activities, and establishes subcontracts for projects.

Grants Resource Guide is available to help investigators and research project staff at the Waisman Center understand and navigate the language, policies, and procedures of sponsored project administration.  The guide includes information on preparing and submitting a proposal, starting up a new project, expending grant funds, and complying with sponsor policies and regulations. It is intended to serve as a “first stop” reference tool and includes many links to sites where more detailed guidance can be found. Please feel free to provide feedback on improvements to this resource, at grants@waisman.wisc.edu.

Please communicate with the Waisman Center Grants Administration office via grants@waisman.wisc.edu.
