“The OIBR staff is truly unmatched in their expertise, professionalism, and work quality. The top-notch support they provide for hiring, purchasing, and budgeting means that I can focus my time on research and dissemination. I especially appreciate their willingness to pursue answers and information on my behalf, as I navigate conducting research at UGA. I constantly feel lucky to have OIBR on my team!”

“Everyone I have worked with at OIBR has provided exceptional support for my research. I feel so fortunate to be able to submit my proposals through the institute and to have them manage my grants. I know that no matter who I talk to, they will be willing to help and if they don’t know an answer to a question they will find out. I also appreciate the way OIBR staff collaborate to support us as researchers, which allows us to spend more time on our research.”

The OIBR grant development program and the support throughout the years from all of the staff have made me (and many others affiliated with OIBR) a better scholar in pursing research funding and continuing to conduct impactful collaborative research.

OIBR Updated Policies 2021

Effective December 1, 2021 OIBR welcomes all Affiliates (new and existing) and Distinguished Scholars to use our pre-award services to submit proposals of all types. However, we will no longer accept industry contracts unless the Principal Investigator has an active grant(s) already managed by OIBR and we are continuing our current policy of not accepting transfers from other colleges or departments or outside the university.

Anyone wishing to use OIBR services needs to give us at least one-month advance notice (no matter how small the proposal) of the intention to pursue a specific funding opportunity. In addition, all submission materials must be finalized 3 business days in advance of the proposal deadline. Please note that, if you notify the pre-award staff with less than a month notice, we may be unable to assist with the submission. This decision will be based primarily on our submission queue at the time of notice and the specifics of the funding opportunity.
