Managing Awards

When you receive notice of a grant or fellowship award, you should contact either Ken Garcia  (Humanities and Arts) or Lori Loftis (Social Sciences) in ISLA, and either of your Notre Dame Research grants program managers, Megan Sheraton or Shannon Buchmann.

Award Management

Your grants program manager will review the sponsor agreement, obtain the appropriate institutional signatures when necessary, assist you with completing agency forms and budget revisions, and return the signed grant agreement to the sponsor. Megan or Shannon will also work with Research and Sponsored Programs Accounting (RSPA) to set up an account number for your project. RSPA will oversee the financial aspects of your grant. 

During the life of your grant, you may need to make some changes to the agreement, the budget, or the time period of the grant. Please contact Megan or Shannon for any changes in the grant or other grant-related questions. You are able to submit some requests online.

Award Notification

It is very important that you contact ISLA when you receive an award. Please do not rely on other individuals to tell ISLA about your award. If you are expecting to take a sabbatical leave and to use the funds you receive from a fellowship or grant to recover some of your salary, it is very important to notify ISLA so the proper paperwork can be processed.

Delay in notification of an award can cause a delay in the funds being used to support your sabbatical leave. 

For information regarding sabbaticals and leaves of absence, please contact your department chair.
