Grant and Project Development Resources


Team meeting in an office conference room

The AAI Project Development (PD) team facilitates the grant proposal and reporting process for external research funding in the areas of human development, education, and health. If you plan to submit a sponsored project through AAI, the pre-proposal or proposal must be reviewed, approved, and submitted by the AAI PD team. This includes all proposals and any pre-proposals that include budget information or contractual language, or that require institutional approval. Review is required to ensure that proposed budgets are accurate and that the proposed scope of work is in compliance with applicable federal regulations governing sponsored projects, university policies, and funding agency guidelines. AAI PD provides a number of services, including:

  • Preparing proposal budgets and budget justifications
  • Reviewing proposals for compliance with federal, state, university, and funding agency guidelines
  • Populating proposal application forms
  • Compiling and submitting proposals and reports via our internal system, online agency portals, email, and FedEx
  • Serving as a liaison for investigators with KUCR and funding agencies

Contact Judy Eyerly for assistance with grant proposals, budget preparation, letters of intent, contract execution, annual and final grant reporting, no-cost extensions, and non-automatic PI status designation.
