  • Grants Team

    The Grants team provides the final review and submission of all grant proposals from the schools and centers for which JHURA has responsibility. Each grants team member works closely with departmental administrators, staff, and faculty, providing guidance and advice to ensure compliance with University and sponsor guidelines, including federal and state regulations during the proposal development and review period, to ensure a successful submission. The Grants team is also responsible for the review, negotiation, and execution of all grant awards, including, but not limited to, foundations, private/profit companies, State, Federal, and Foreign Governments.
