Grant Submission

Page last modified by Kierra Suggs on September 1, 2015

We believe that collaborations on grand and small scale offer the greatest chance of yielding answers to our important questions. To foster collaborative relationships we offer grant submission services to our affiliated faculty and their students. JHU faculty that are affiliated with INBT can submit collaborative proposals through our institute and take advantage of the resources offered by INBT, including superior customer service, knowledgeable staff, and post- award administration. We simplify the process of submitting proposals that include multiple collaborators across divisions.

To inquire about grant submissions, please email our Research Service Analyst Kierra Suggs at or call 410-516-3853 with the following information:

  • Link or number to the RFA or PA (if available) as soon as you start thinking about submitting a proposal
  • Names of all related personnel, their percentages (effort and/or salary) and their contact information. Must include INBT affiliated faculty.
  • A working budget
  • A project title and summary
  • Include completed compliance checklist (download here)

All documents should be sent electronically to: Kierra Suggs, at If paper copies are required please mail or personally drop off to: Croft Hall (formerly NEB), Suite 100, Homewood Campus.

To allow for time to assemble the official budget, gather appropriate signatures, and route documents- we request that all preliminary materials are received at least 10 days in advance of the application deadline. Each proposal is fundamentally different and have different requirements. We recommend that you allot at least two months preparation to compile all the necessary documents. Review your proposed submission timeline to account for all documents from subawardees and collaborators as these typically take longer to receive.


In addition to grant submission services we have a number of resources to help you with finding the right funding opportunity, fellowship opportunities, submission guidance, and compliance. The links below can help you get started.
