Grant Options in UFunds

Authors list

Most of the options available for grants are descriptive, and will appear to applicants on the UFunds home page browse screen. Details on available options is below:

  • Name: The name of your grant as it will appear on the main browse screen.
  • Description: The description of your grant. This will be visible on the browse screen when a user clicks on the grant.
  • Account Number: Optional. If your grant has a single account that payments come from or you want to specify a default account, you can do that here. This account number can be overridden either by the grant period setting of the same name, or on individual awards.
  • Sponsoring Departments: Search here for the appropriate department(s) that are sponsoring the grant. This will be visible as part of the grant details on the browse screen.
  • Brown Connect: Indicate here whether the grant should be visible in Brown Connect. This should only be selected for undergraduate opportunities.
  • Active Status: If you want to hide this grant from your own lists, you can unselect this option. Note that this does not affect grant period visibility on the main browse screen.
  • Managers: There is an auto-complete field here to search UFunds grant managers, and “remove” links to delete existing grant managers. Note that before you can add a grant manager, that person must already be in UFunds with the generic grant manager role.
  • Additional Notification Recipient Email: Grant Managers and Approvers will always be notified of application submissions. If there is someone else who needs to know about submitted grant applications, put their email address here.
