Grants and Contracts at Eastern New Mexico University are overseen by the Office of Sponsored Projects. The office provides the University with a variety of services in the preparation and oversight of all University external grants and contracts and Internal Research or Instructional Development grants.

External Grants

The Office of Sponsored Projects assists faculty and staff in all aspects of producing a grant proposal. The office of Sponsored Projects can assist in preparing and producing proposals, including locating funding sources, formulating budgets, providing clerical assistance, obtaining administrative approval, and duplicating and mailing the final product. For each external grant proposal, the project director must submit both a Budget Approval Form and a Grant Approval Form to the sponsored projects manager. These forms can be accessed in the forms section below or by University staff and faculty through the myENMU Portal.

Internal Grants

The proposals are reviewed by the Research and Faculty Development Committee which is appointed by the Faculty Senate. The committee calls for proposals and recommends awards once a year. The call for proposals will appear in the Greyhound Gazette and will be sent to all eligible faculty via email.

Instructional Development: The Office of Sponsored Projects also solicits grants for instructional development. These grants provide resources and/or seed money for innovative courses, projects and programs. The proposals are reviewed by the Instructional Development Committee.
