This policy formalizes the responsibilities for administration of non-charitable and charitable grants and establishes guidelines for faculty and administrators who are involved in applying for, receiving, and administering external grants.
Grants are awarded to Longwood University because of the expertise of faculty and staff members who initiate and pursue grant proposals; however, Longwood University assumes institutional and financial responsibility for the externally funded program or activity and Longwood University as a whole is responsible for ensuring that the project is carried out in accordance with all of the sponsor’s requirements, federal guidelines, university policies and procedures and the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia. To meet that end, all grant proposals must be routed through the proper university channels. Faculty and staff can find the procedures for external grants and sponsored research in the Office of Sponsored Programs, the Office of Grant and Contract Financial Administration, the Office of Major Gifts and Foundation Relations, or at the following electronic link - http://www.longwood.edu/assets/sponsoredprograms/Grants_procedures.pdf.
