Faculty Guide

Welcome to the University of Maryland!

We hope this guide will be of use to you as you navigate the sponsored research protocols and procedures at the University of Maryland.

To ease the understanding of the whole proposal lifecycle, we have divided it into 6 sections that take you through the entire process. Upon completion of these sections, we would strongly recommend that you go through our Proposal Checklist to ensure you have everything in place to get started.

The Office of Research Administration (ORA) is here to help you obtain and manage your sponsored research funding. Please don’t hesitate to contact us. Again, WELCOME!
