HELPFUL HINTS

  • You DO NOT need a login/password to search funding opportunities on Grants.gov.
  • Many applications packages require the use of the latest Adobe Acrobat version. The software is free and no registration is required.
  • There is NO need to register with Grants.gov, UAB is already registered.
  • Authorized Organization Representatives (AOR) submit applications on behalf of the institution, therefore “AOR” access is restricted to the OSP staff at UAB.
  • Completed electronic applications should be transmitted to OSP via the OSP drop-box.  For information on the OSP drop-box go to OSP Dropbox Quick Submission Guide
